Paul Walter signed his first professional contract in June 2016 after a successful trial period with the club.Playing in the Shepherd Neame Essex Premier League for Hornchurch Cricket Club, Walter rose to prominence at the age of 18 after hitting six sixes in an over. Although an unconventional route, he joined the first team in Dubai during pre-season, where he showed the attitude and quality required to achieve a professional contract.

The 6’7 left-armer has since gone on to feature across all formats with the majority of his match time has come in white-ball cricket. In 2017, he was the leading wicket-taker in NatWest T20 Blast cricket for the Eagles with 15 wickets.

A genuine all-rounder, in red-ball cricket, Walter averaged over 36 between 2018-2022 and scoring his maiden century against Yorkshire in May 2022 this came after many attempts of falling just short, getting out in the 90s on three occasions before hitting the famous three-figures.

The 2022 Hundred saw Walter drafted for the first time, playing for the Manchester Originals as cover for Jamie Overton following an injury. It didn’t take him long to get used to the slightly shorter format, taking 2 wickets in his second game, this would kick-start his campaign, which would finish with him as the leading wicket-taker for the second edition of the competition.
