Chris Walker (born 12 November 1973, Belfast, Northern Ireland) is a Northern Irish footballer.

Walker played as a centre back for Glentoran from 1994 until January 2007. He previously played for First Liverpool. He is a Glentoran supporter, growing up close to the club's home, The Oval. A fan's favourite, Walker has the club crest 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.

On January 12, 2007 he left Glentoran to join Armagh City, after a loan spell at the club.

In August 2008 Chris Walker signed for Amateur league side Sirocco Works who play their football in Division 1A where he is now a player manager.

Chris became a dad for the first time on 26 November to Jaxon Roy Kelly
