Born in St Helens, Merseyside, Gilchrist attended the De La Salle School in the town. He joined Manchester City in 2001 at the age of six, having been picked up by local scout Jimmy Pullen. He spent ten years at the club and was top scorer in six of those seasons. He failed to earn a scholarship with Manchester City and in the summer of 2011 he joined Burnley on a two-year scholarship. In his first season in the youth team he scored 26 goals finishing as top goalscorer. In his second year in the youth team he scored 22 goals, which included a hat-trick at Old Trafford against Manchester United in the FA Youth Cup. In March 2013 he experienced his first taste of senior football joining Conference North side Droylsden on loan until the end of the season. He made his debut for the club in a 3–0 home defeat to Guiseley. His first professional goal came in April 2013 in a 3–1 away win at Colwyn Bay. He made a total of ten appearances for the Bloods scoring once, however, he could not save the club from relegation to the Northern Premier League.

In the summer of 2013 following the conclusion of his scholarship he was offered a one-year professional contract with the Championship side. He spent the majority of his first year as a professional playing in the Development Squad as Burnley gained promotion to the Premier League. In the summer of 2014 he signed a new one-year contract extension, remaining in the Development Squad. In February 2015 he signed for League Two side Accrington Stanley on loan until the end of the season. He made his professional league debut in a 3–0 away defeat to Burton Albion, replacing Josh Windass as a substitute.

In January 2016, he was sent out on loan to National League side Chester on a one-month loan deal. In April 2016, it was announced that he was to leave Burnley at the end of the season after his contract was not renewed and joined FC United of Manchester in time for the start of the 2016–17 season.
