Chalkley, brother of West Ham centre-half George and Dartford left-back Charlie, was born in Plaistow in east London. He played schoolboy football as an outside-left, and was capped for England Boys against Scotland in 1917, although he served with the Army during World War I and later became a steel erector.
Chalkley signed pro forms with West Ham after impressing in a trial game during the 1931–32 season. He made his Division One debut on 29 August 1931, a 1–0 away loss against Bolton Wanderers in front of 12,000 people. Two days later, he experienced a home crowd of 35,000, and a 3–1 win against Chelsea. He went on to make 202 League and cup appearances for the Irons, and was an ever-present during the 1934–35 season. His only goal came against Manchester City on 2 March 1932, a clearance from his own penalty area that somehow managed to clear City 'keeper Len Langford.
He retired from the professional football in 1937, although records show him playing for West Ham during World War II.
