As a player Chalmers played for various clubs as a striker; he was transferred from Queens Park Rangers in 1928 for £2,500 to play for Newcastle United.

At Newcastle he played alongside club legend Hughie Gallacher, who was also born in Bellshill. Chalmers scored against Leicester City on his debut, then in his second game he scored twice against Burnley which made him become popular quickly with the Toon fans[3].
