Macclesfield next manager after Daryl McMahon
Who is Macclesfield manager Daryl McMahon?
Succeeding Sol Campbell, Daryl McMahon was appointed manager of Maccelsfield Town on the 19th August 2019. This makes him only the second incoming manager in the English football league pyramid, after Huddersfield's Jan Siewart was dismissed and replaced by Mark Hudson on, albeit on a temporary basis. Born in Dublin, 1983, McMahon enjoyed a 13 year career as a player before hanging up his boots. Employed predominantly as a midfielder, McMahon played for 13 clubs over a 15 year period, the majority of which occupied the lower divisions of the English game.
He began his footballing education with West Ham United. Although he would not make an appearance for the Hammers, he stayed with them for two years after graduating from their academy, during this time he spent a few months on loan with Torquay United where he would make his first senior professional appearance. Later that year, McMahon would move on a permanent basis to Port Vale. He wouldn't stay long however. After five appearances he moved on again, to Leyton Orient. He would settle better with this club, playing 65 times and scoring the first of his 43 career goals with them. After three years, in 2007, McMahon moved to Stevenage Borough who then played in the Conference. This would be his first non-league club, although he would go on to play for several more.
For Stevenage Borough, McMahon appeared 65 times in a spell which lasted less almost two years. During this team he was part of the victorious FA Trophy squad in the 2006/2007 season, one of three honours McMahon won during his playing career. He would score seven times, also; this was his second best goal return for a single club. After this stint he agreed to join fellow Conference side, Cambridge United. His time with the club would be brief however, McMahon left in 2009, the same year he was signed. after appearing just nine times for the then promotion hopefuls.
From here, McMahon joined Farnbrough, the club where he would spend arguably the happiest years of his career. All in all, the midfielder played 75 times in his two seasons with the club, scoring 11 times in the process. In the 2009/2010 season, the first of his two seasons with the club, McMahon lifted the Southern Football League Premier Division trophy, earning his side promotion to the Conference South in the Process. He would stay for a further season with Fairnborough before leaving in favour of Boreham Wood where he managed a measly ten appearances in his one and only season.
As it transpired, he would spend the rest of his career in the Conference South. He played for Eastleigh for two seasons before finding more regular football with Dover Athletic and Ebbsfleet Uniyted, he made a combined total of 90 appearances in his six seasons with the two clubs, scoring 17 times along the way. Before hanging up his boots he returned to Boreham Wood for one last season. McMahon made 401 appearances in all competitions in his career, scoring almost half a century of goals.
He began his managerial career with Ebbsfleet in 2014, initially on an interim basis. Afteer being appointed permanently, McMahon would gain promotion to the National League with the club, an achievement which would earn him the recognition of Macclesfield Town, the club he joined after a nine month hiatus from football. In his first full season with Macclesfield, McMahon will be hoping he can guide them to safety, just as his predecessor did last season - anything else will surely be a bonus.
