Career[edit]

Hereford[edit]

McQuilkin was born in Tipton, West Midlands.[1] Having previously been attached to West Bromwich Albion[2] and FC Tescoma Zlín,[3] McQuilkin made his Football League debut for Hereford United in their opening home game of the 2009–10 season against Cheltenham Town. He signed a new 1-year contract at the end of the 2009/10 season to keep him at the club. After becoming a regular member of the starting XI in his second season at Edgar Street he signed a new contract to keep him at the club until the end of the 2012/2013 season. After finding first team chances limited, he joined Kidderminster Harriers on loan for an initial one-month period in January 2012. He made five appearances for the club, scoring once before returning to Hereford after the end of the month's loan period. He was released by Hereford United on 22 March 2013.

Walsall[edit]

After leaving Hereford, McQuilkin signed a one-year contract at League One side Walsall on 29 July 2013 following a successful trial spell. Saddlers manager Dean Smith praised McQuilkin, saying: "He has put in some good performances and I have been extremely impressed with his attitude. He is a welcome addition to the squad."[4]
