He started his career at Arsenal in 1935, turning professional in 1936.

Walsh made a total of three first-class appearances for Arsenal, all of them in the First Division, before being transferred to Derby County in June 1939.

Walsh played for Derby during World War II and made a single League appearance in 1946-47. He moved to Walsall in March 1947 and made 33 appearances for them before his retirement from League football in 1948, making a total of 37 Football League appearances in a career interrupted by the Second World War. Walsh later managed non-league sides Redditch United and Hednesford Town.
