A central midfielder/defender, Charlie Walters was a strong lynch-pin in the centre of the Tottenham defence in his career at White Hart Lane.
An amateur player with Oxford City, Charlie developed a reputation as a resilient central defender, attracting a number of scouts to watch him, but Tottenham nipped in ahead of them to snap up the player on amateur terms.
Very quick, Charlie cut a stylish figure in the heart of the defence, but he beefed up to become a tough centre-half, taking Charlie Rance's place in the side and was notably fast for a central defender.
Charlie had a particularly good match in the FA Cup Final in 1921, when he proved a tower of strength that the Wolverhampton Wanderers attack foundered on and his booming clearances allowed the Spurs players to take a breather on the quagmire of a pitch. Always a more defensive rather than creative centre-half, Charlie could be relied upon to stop the opposition making progress, but fought off competition from Charlie Rance to keep his place in the side for the later half of the 1920-21 season and help Spurs win the FA Cup and Charity Shield.
After two seasons in the first team, Walters was ousted by Harry Skitt and moved away to play at Fulham and then Mansfield Town, as he wound down his career. On retirement, Charlie went to live in Oxfordshire.
Charlie Walters died on 13th May 1971 in Bath, Somerset, England.
