Walter left Neilston Juniors in 1947 to sign for St Mirren. After 2 seasons with 6 goals from 41 appearances he left Love Street to join Stirling Albion. After just 5 appearances Walter was to move on to Stranraer in 1950.
With a goal tally into double figures, Walter was very much part of the brilliant 1946/47 Neilston side which won the Western League Championship, Western League Cup, Renfrewshire Junior Cup and reached another two finals.
