The return of Les Sealey (who had been at United for 18 months until the end of the 1990–91 season) in January 1993 meant that Walsh was now third choice goalkeeper, and the following season he was transfer-listed. He had also been out the squad for a while before Sealey’s arrival, as United had brought in Fraser Digby on loan from Swindon Town as an (unused) understudy to Peter Schmeichel.
For a short time in the 1987–88 season, a 19-year-old Walsh was made first-choice goalkeeper after Gary Bailey retired due to injury and Chris Turner was dropped from the team. He played in 16 league games before his run in the first team was halted by a head injury sustained in a mid-season friendly in Bermuda, and a succession of further injuries ruled him out until the 1990–91 season. He was on the substitutes bench as United lifted the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup that season, and the arrival of Peter Schmeichel that summer made his first-team opportunities even more limited.

As a player, he was a goalkeeper from 1985 to 2006, notably playing Premier League football with Manchester United, Oldham Athletic, Middlesbrough, Bradford City and Wigan Athletic. He also played in Scotland for Airdrieonians, He became goalkeeping coach at Wigan under manager Paul Jewell before teaming back up with Jewell at Derby County.
Walsh produced his best form in a number of years in the 1997–98 season and crowned a superb campaign by picking up the club’s Player of the Year award. However, injury and the form of Matt Clarke saw Walsh fall out of favour at Bradford City.
A little frustrated at the lack of first team opportunities available to him, Walsh moved to Middlesbrough (managed by his former teammate Bryan Robson) for £600,000 in August 1995, and played in 32 out of 38 Premier League games that season for a newly promoted side which went fourth in October but in the end could only manage a 12th-place finish due to a terrible run of form during the winter. The following season, however, he managed just 12 league appearances due to the emergence of Ben Roberts and the arrival of Mark Schwarzer. Middlesbrough also managed to reach both domestic cup finals that season. In the League Cup campaign, Walsh played in the quarter final victory over Liverpool, but was not selected in the final squad against Leicester City, who beat Middlesbrough in a replay. In the FA Cup run he played in the opening game of the campaign against Chester City, but would not feature in the tournament again as his teammates went on to lose the final 2–0 to Chelsea. Walsh never played first team football for the Riverside club again.

Facts & Trivia
Ranked on the list of most popular Association Football Player. Also ranked in the elit list of famous celebrity born in United Kingdom.
Walsh was given a professional contract for the 1986–87 season (during which Ron Atkinson was sacked in favour of Alex Ferguson) and made his first-team debut soon after. He played 14 league games that season.
A back injury suffered by Peter Schmeichel in November 1994 saw Walsh selected for 10 subsequent Premier League games, during which he conceded just 12 goals, while the Dane recovered. Walsh also played in several Football League Cup and European Cup games that season, though when Schmeichel returned to fitness Walsh was back on the substitute’s bench or in the reserves. Had United won the league title that season, Walsh would have collected the first (and ultimately the only) league title winner’s medal of his career as he had met the minimum requirement for appearances to gain the accolade, but United were beaten to the league title by Blackburn Rovers on the final day of the season when they failed to get the better of a West Ham United side who held them to a 1–1 draw in east London.
However, United won the league title that season with three matches to spare, and to prepare his best players for the FA Cup final, Alex Ferguson selected Walsh as goalkeeper for the final three league games of the season and Walsh’s form was so impressive that he gained a new contract, while the veteran Les Sealey was released. Walsh was on the substitute’s bench as United triumphed 4–0 over Chelsea in the FA Cup Final on 14 May 1994 to complete the Double.
