Joe Chalmers (born 3 January 1994)[7] is a Scottish footballer who currently plays as a left back for Scottish Premiership club Motherwell. He previously played for Celtic, making three first team appearances, and also spent a short loan spell with Scottish Championship side Falkirk in 2014.

Career[edit]

Celtic[edit]

Chalmers joined Celtic at the age of 10 and went on to progress through the youth ranks at the academy.[8] Chalmers, along with four youngsters, signed his first professional contract at the club in December 2011.[9] A member of the club's under-20 side,[10] on 25 August 2012, he made his senior debut for the club, coming on as a 76th-minute substitute in a Scottish Premier League match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, replacing Emilio Izaguirre.[11] Cha

On 31 January 2014, Chalmers signed for Falkirk on loan until the end of the 2013–14 season.[12] Chalmers made his Falkirk debut at left-back in a 2–0 defeat to Queen of the South at Palmerston Park on 8 February 2014.[13] In his spell at Falkirk, he made a total of 11 appearances. He was unfortunately injured for The Bairns Scottish Premiership Play-off campaign, meaning his last appearance came in a 3–1 home win against Alloa on 3 May 2014.[14] Afterwards, he returned to his parent club, Celtic.[15]

After his return, Chalmers was given another chance, under new manager, Ronny Deila. However, multiple injuries, such as persistent groin and hip injuries reduced Chalmers' playing time much further.[8] At the end of the 2014-15 season, Chalmers was released by the club.[8]

Motherwell[edit]

On 4 June 2015, Chalmers signed for Scottish Premiership club Motherwell on a two-year contract.[16] Upon signing for the club, Chalmers said the move might not have happened had Motherwell lost to Rangers in the play-offs.[17][18] He made his debut on 1 August 2015, in a 1–0 win against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.[19]

International Career[edit]

Chalmers represented Scotland at under-16, under-17, under-19, under-20 and under-21 levels.
