In June 2014, Walker suffered a knee injury which ruled him out for the remainder of the season and dogged him for the rest of his career. Despite this, in July 2016 he became the first Aboriginal footballer to play 200 games for Carlton, reaching the milestone in their round 15 loss to Collingwood. In the following months he continued to struggle with injury, and in August announced his intention to retire after the round 20 match against St Kilda at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
In 2011, he re-established himself as a key member of Carlton’s senior team, in a new position as a key forward. He played all 24 games for the season, and kicked 56 goals to be the club’s leading goalkicker, and finished sixth in the best and fairest. Additionally, in round 18 against Essendon, Walker took a huge specky over Essendon player Jake Carlisle, which was considered by many football observers, including The Age’s Rohan Connolly, and both match-day coaches, Brett Ratten and James Hird, to be one of the greatest marks of all-time – although ultimately it did not win the season’s Mark of the Year award. He was awarded life membership of the Carlton Football Club in December 2011.
After finally returning to regular game-time in 2010, Walker was struggling to hold his place in the team as a midfielder/utility on form. Carlton sought interest from other clubs during the 2010 trade week, but ultimately no trade was negotiated and he remained at Carlton.
He was one of a number of Carlton players involved in off-field incidents following a 2009 Christmas party/ According to sources one of the players was arguing with a woman before a fight broke out between the teammates that ended up involving hotel staff. A security guard also became involved before police arrived as the fight was brought under control. Walker was escorted off the Crown Melbourne premises. He was then fined and suspended from pre-season training for a month. They were sent to a boxing gym and underwent a strenuous training program.
Walker’s 2008 and 2009 seasons were severely limited by a shoulder injury. He initially injured the shoulder in 2008 pre-season training; he recuperated without surgery to play in Carlton’s pre-season games, but injured it again in the Blues’ final practice match, requiring a reconstruction which prevented him from playing until round 16. He injured it again at the start of 2009, requiring another operation and preventing him from playing until round 18. Walker managed only thirteen matches for the two seasons.
In 2007 Walker continued to develop as a footballer, and moved into Carlton’s midfield where he uses his pace and ball carrying ability. In mid-2007, he signed a deal tying him to the club until 2009.
He was educated at St Joseph’s College Echuca and Caulfield Grammar School and graduated in 2004.
Walker made his debut in round 5, 2004 in Carlton’s win over West Coast at Optus Oval, a performance that was considered one of the greatest debuts ever by a young player. In that game, he amassed 26 disposals, assisted three goals, and flew for what may well have been Mark of the Year had he held on to the ball. Walker earned a Rising Star Award nomination, and one Brownlow Medal vote, his career first, for that performance.
For the rest of 2004 and 2005, Andrew struggled to reproduce the stunning form he displayed on debut, and it wasn’t until 2006 that he started to play consistent football for the Carlton senior side. In 2006, Andrew had a number of very successful games as a tagger (often tagging the opposition’s premier midfielder), and also provided much run off half back. Andrew’s good 2006 was acknowledged by the club with a top 10 placing in the club’s Best and Fairest Award.
Walker was taken with Carlton’s priority draft pick, the second pick overall, in the 2003 National Draft. Walker was Carlton’s only high draft pick in either 2002 or 2003, as the club was stripped of its early selections in those drafts due to salary cap breaches. He was given Carlton champion Stephen Silvagni’s guernsey number 1 after its two-year retirement. Andrew was a bottom-aged player in the 2003 Draft, and studied Year 12 – Victorian Certificate of Education – during his debut year, at Caulfield Grammar School.
