Walker started with Barrow and was recruited by Leeds City for their first-ever Football
League Division Two campaign in June 1905. He did not make the team for the opening game but
gradually took over from Harry Stringfellow as the first choice Centre Half, but also played
once at Right Half, Right Back and Left Half, as the situation arose. He had competition
from John George and Jimmy Freeborough but he had gained the ascendancy when City bought
Gerard Kirk from Bradford City and once more he had to be content with being second choice.
He left at the end of his second season to become the then Non-League Huddersfield Town
Player-Manager in August 1908. He played for them in the North Eastern League and the
Midland League before retiring in 1910, the year in which Town gained entry into Division
Two of the Football League.
