Caldwell played for Manchester United, (without making any first-team appearances) and Winsford United, and after a trial at Aston Villa joined Port Vale in May 1935. He played one Second Division game for the club in the 1934–35 season. He scored ten goals in 42 games in the 1935–36 season, the first one of note being against former employers Manchester United at Old Trafford in a 7–2 defeat. He also scored the equalizer in a 2–2 draw with top-flight Sunderland at Roker Park that earned the "Valiants" a replay in the Third Round of the FA Cup. However he was limited to just 13 Third Division North games in the 1936–37 season, scoring two goals, as he was struck down with injury. He recovered to score ten goals in 35 league games in the 1937–38, including a hat-trick in a 5–1 win over Hartlepools United at The Old Recreation Ground on 9 October. However he featured just four times in the Third Division South in the 1938–39 season, and left the club as World War II approached.
