Walton began with Cleator Moor before joining West Stanley in August 1919. Leeds recruited him from the Nort-Eastern amateur club in July 1920. He was left-half in United’s first-ever game in the Football League at Port Vale on 28th August 1920, and he missed only one game in United’s first season in the Football League. When skipper Jim Baker moved to left half, Walton found his way to the first team barred and after a few games at inside forward he went to Bristol Rovers in August 1923. He was a regular at Rovers until a disagreement with the club which resulted in his £125 transfer to Brentford in November 1924 after he had scored once in forty League appearances at Eastville. The Bees released him at the end of the 1925-26 season after he had made fifty-nine League appearances for them and he wound up his League career with a couple of games for Hartlepools United in November 1926. He died on 20th November 1982.
