Walters never settled in England, and never played a first team game with Orient, returning home to Jamaica to play for Tivoli Gardens in the Jamaican National Premier League in 2002. He won the JNPL title with Tivoli in 2003/2004.

Walters moved to the United States in 2006, and played 16 games with the Atlanta Silverbacks U23's as an over-age player in the USL Premier Development League, before moving onto the senior Atlanta Silverbacks team the following year.

He was released by the Silverbacks at the end of the season,[1] and subsequently signed with the Wilmington Hammerheads in the USL Second Division in 2008, where he was named to the USL2 All-League Second Team.[2] He re-signed for the Hammerheads in 2009.[3]
