Walker played as a centre back for Glentoran from 1994 until January 2007. He previously played for First Liverpool, a minor league club based in east Belfast. He is a Glentoran supporter, growing up close to the club's home, The Oval. A fan's favourite, Walker has the club badge tattooed on his thigh.
In 2006 Walker had a testimonial match against The New Saints F.C., (previously known as TNS) which Glentoran lost 2-1. Former Glens player Jim Cleary featured in the match. Cleary's reason for playing was that if he played he would not be overtaken by Walker on attendances before his 50th birthday.
In August 2008 Chris Walker signed for Amateur league side Sirocco Works who play their football in Division 1A where he became player manager. However Walker would later return to the Oval to take charge of Glentoran's Under-17 side.
