Levi Alan Mackin (born 4 April 1986) is a footballer who plays for Conwy Borough as a midfielder.

Mackin started his career with Wrexham in their youth system, before making his first team debut on the last day of the 2003–04 season. He made 11 appearances the following season and he signed his first professional contract in 2005. He established himself in the team in the 2005–06 season, having made 19 appearances. However, next season, appearances became rarer and in 2008 he was loaned to Conference Premier team Droylsden. After being recalled by Wrexham, he scored in their final game in the Football League before relegation to the Conference Premier. He joined York City on loan in 2009 and played for them in the 2009 FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium. After being released by Wrexham he signed for York permanently and played in the 2010 Conference Premier play-off Final at Wembley. He was released by York in 2011 before having spells with Alfreton Town, Chester and Bangor City.

Born in England, Mackin has represented Wales at international level. He was on the substitutes' bench twice for the under-17 team, before making an appearance in 2002. He received call ups to the under-19 team but did not make any appearances. Having received his first call up for the under-21 team in 2005, he made his first and only appearance against Northern Ireland in 2006.

Club career[edit]

Wrexham[edit]

Mackin was born in Chester, Cheshire and grew up in nearby Blacon.[3] He played for Blacon Youth Club in their under-12 team and in the 1997–98 season was named League Player of the Year.[4] He played for hometown club Chester City as a schoolboy before moving to Wrexham on the same basis at the age of 15.[5][6][7] He progressed through their youth system and he captained them in an FA Youth Cup game against Watford.[8] He helped the youth team win a league championship, which resulted in him being given a squad number with the first team.[9] He made his first team debut at the age of 18 after starting in a 1–1 draw at Wycombe Wanderers on 1 May 2004, the final game of the 2003–04 season.[10][11] His first appearance of the 2004–05 season came as a 50th minute substitute in a 2–2 draw with Hull City in the League Cup on 24 August 2004, which Wrexham won 3–1 in a penalty shoot-out.[12] Mackin made his first league appearance of the season in a 5–1 defeat at Luton Town as a 63rd minute substitute on 6 November 2005 and his first start came on 11 December in a 3–0 defeat at Milton Keynes Dons (MK Dons) as a replacement for the suspended Darren Ferguson.[12][13] He suffered from a sore thigh in January 2005 and he made his return to the team as an 88th minute substitute in a 0–0 draw with MK Dons on 26 February.[12][14] He fouled Steve Jenkins inside the penalty area during stoppage time at Swindon Town on 19 March, which led to Sam Parkin scoring a penalty kick, the final goal in a 4–2 defeat for Wrexham.[15] He finished the season with 11 appearances and signed his first professional contract after the end of the season on 11 July 2005.[1][12]

Mackin drew praise from manager Denis Smith after scoring against Hereford United in a pre-season friendly in July 2005, saying "We wouldn't keep persevering with him if we didn't think he was any good".[16] His first appearance of the 2005–06 season came as a 90th minute substitute in a 1–0 defeat at Notts County.[17] He sustained a knee injury during a 1–0 victory over Darlington on 29 October 2005, which resulted in him being substituted in the 31st minute.[17][18] He spent nearly three months injured before rejoining the squad for training towards the end of January 2006 and he made his return to the team on 4 February after coming on as a 20th minute substitute in a 2–0 victory over Wycombe.[17][19] He finished the season with 19 appearances for Wrexham,[17] having established himself as a regular member of the team.[9] He entered negotiations over a new contract in June 2006,[20] which he signed in July.[21]

His first appearance of the 2006–07 season was in a 0–0 draw with Peterborough United on 12 August 2006, a game he entered as a 59th minute substitute.[22] The next game he played in was a 4–1 victory at Championship team Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup on 23 August 2006.[22] Mackin suffered a knee injury during a reserve team game in September 2006 and he made his return as a 90th minute substitute in a 4–1 defeat after extra time at Birmingham City of the Championship in the League Cup second round on 19 September.[22][23] He picked up another knee injury in October 2006 and he made his return in a 2–1 defeat to MK Dons on 14 October.[22][24] An injury to Mark Jones allowed Mackin back into the team for a 4–0 defeat to Boston United on 9 December 2006.[22][25] His 2006–07 season finished with 11 appearances as opportunities in the team were "frustratingly rare" and he was offered a new long-term contract by Wrexham in May 2007.[9][22][26]

His first appearance of the 2007–08 season came as a 75th minute substitute in a 2–0 defeat at Darlington on 11 August 2007 and following a 2–1 defeat at Bradford City on 25 August he said "I'm pleased with my form at the moment because I've been working hard to try and stay in the team and I'm happy that things seem to be going well for me at the moment".[27][28] Mackin joined Conference Premier team Droylsden on a one-month loan on 24 January 2008,[29] having made seven appearances for Wrexham up to that point during the season.[27] He made his debut in a 1–0 victory over Kidderminster Harriers and on 31 January 2008 the loan was extended until the end of the season after earning "rave reviews" for his performances.[30][31][32] His only goal for Droylsden came in the 70th minute against Torquay United on 1 April 2008, which was their only goal in a 2–1 defeat.[30] He made 15 appearances and scored one goal for Droylsden before returning to Wrexham after being recalled from the loan in April 2008.[30][33] The four appearances he made following his return were described as "battling",[34] and the last of these included his first goal for Wrexham in a 4–2 win at Lincoln City on 3 May, which was Wrexham's final game in the Football League before their relegation to the Conference Premier.[27][35] He later commented "I got a little touch on it and I'm not sure if the defender got the final touch but it went straight in and I'm very pleased with it!"[36] He finished the season with 11 appearances and one goal for Wrexham,[27] with opportunities in the team again being rare.[9]

A muscle strain forced Mackin to miss a pre-season friendly against Shrewsbury Town in July 2008 and he returned to pre-season training later that month.[37][38] He was shown a red card after picking up two yellows in his first appearance of the 2008–09 season, which was Wrexham's first game in the Conference Premier, as the team beat Stevenage Borough 5–0 on 9 August 2008.[39][40] On reflection, Mackin said "As for the second yellow I felt the ball was there to be won and I thought that's what I did. Looking back now I know I should have stayed on my feet".[39] He was handed a one-match suspension and he returned to the team in a 1–1 draw at Rushden & Diamonds on 17 August 2008.[40][41] Mackin scored his first goal of the season with a 25 yard "rocket" at Grays Athletic, which was Wrexham's only goal in a 2–1 defeat on 20 September 2008.[40][42] Despite starting the season as a regular in the team,[40] he found opportunities in the team hard to come by after the arrival of Dean Saunders as manager.[43]

York City[edit]

Mackin playing for York City in the 2009 FA Trophy Final

He joined fellow Conference Premier team York City on loan until the end of the season on 22 January 2009,[44] after having made 20 appearances and scored one goal for Wrexham up to that point during the season.[40] Following the move, Mackin said "I need a change of scenery. We have a large number of players at the Racecourse at present and it's difficult to get into a side that's doing well and getting the results".[45] He made his debut in a 2–1 defeat at Eastbourne Borough on 24 January 2009 and he was described as looking "off the pace".[46][47] Mackin played for York in their 13–12 penalty shoot-out victory at home to Kidderminster in the FA Trophy third round on 12 February 2009, which had finished 1–1 after extra time.[46] A tight thigh resulted in him missing a game against Oxford United in April 2009 and he made his return later that month in a 0–0 at Barrow.[46][48] Following the close of the league season, Mackin was described as one of York's most consistent performers throughout the season.[49] He started in the 2009 FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium on 9 May 2009, which York lost 2–0 to Stevenage, during which he was "hardly noticed" before receiving a yellow card for "scything down" Darren Murphy.[50][51] He finished the loan spell with 21 appearances,[46] and after returning to Wrexham he was released after spending around a decade with the club.[52][53]

Mackin signed for York permanently on a one-year contract on 22 May 2009.[54][55] After signing, manager Martin Foyle said "Levi was fantastic for us and came on in leaps and bounds. He was one of our most consistent players, but I know there's more to come from him."[56] He appeared in the opening game of the 2009–10 season, a 2–1 defeat at Oxford on 8 August 2009, and was a "strong presence in the City midfield in a very committed performance".[57] Mackin played against former club Wrexham in a 1–0 defeat on 18 August 2009 and following the game he said "We are nearly there. We're all putting in the hard work and we're not that far away from gelling into a good team. The signs are there".[58][59] A foot infection led to him missing a game at Gateshead on 25 August 2009 and he made his return in a 2–0 victory over Crawley Town as an 84th minute substitute on 5 September 2009.[60][61][62] His first start since 22 August 2009 came in a 2–2 draw with Cambridge United on 22 September to fill in for Alex Lawless.[61][63] This was the first of five consecutive games to be started by Mackin before he had a six game spell of being on the substitutes' bench.[61] This came to an end when he started in the 1–0 victory at AFC Wimbledon on 21 November 2009 and his performance drew praise from Foyle.[61][64]

He scored his first goal for York in a 2–1 defeat to Forest Green Rovers on 6 March 2010, with his shot taking a deflection off David Brown.[65] He picked up his 10th yellow card of the season in a 0–0 draw with Altrincham, which resulted in a two-match suspension.[66] He played in both legs of York's play-off semi-final victory over Luton, which finished 2–0 on aggregate.[61] He started in the 2010 Conference Premier play-off Final at Wembley on 16 May 2010, which York lost 3–1 to Oxford.[61] He finished the season with 45 appearances and one goal for York and signed a new one-year contract with the club in May 2010.[61][67]

Mackin playing for York City in 2010

Mackin made his first appearance of the 2010–11 season in the opening game, a 2–1 defeat to Kidderminster on 14 August 2010, and was substituted in the 38th minute due to an injury and Foyle said "It looks a bad one and he might need a scan".[68][69][70] The scan revealed no knee ligament damage had occurred and it was estimated he would be injured for a month.[71][72] He returned to training in November 2010, having been out of the team injured for almost three months,[73] with his first appearance coming as an 87th minute substitute in a 3–0 victory over League Two side Rotherham United in an FA Cup first round replay on 17 November.[68][70] He scored at home for the first time for York with the 85th minute winner against Forest Green on 22 January 2011, the goal being a drilled shot into the bottom corner.[68][74] Mackin finished the season with 13 appearances and one goal before being released by York on 23 June 2011 after being told he could find another club.[68][75]

Alfreton Town[edit]

Mackin signed for newly promoted Conference Premier club Alfreton Town on a one-year contract on 2 July 2011.[76] His debut came after starting in a 1–1 draw with Darlington on 23 August 2011 and scored his first goal with the winner in a 1–0 victory away at former club York on 29 August after scoring a penalty.[77] After struggling to break into the team he was released by Alfreton after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent on 4 January 2012,[78] having made 13 appearances and scored one goal for the club.[77]

Chester[edit]

On the same day of his Alfreton release Mackin joined hometown club Chester, signing for the Northern Premier League Premier Division side on a contract until the end of the 2011–12 season.[79] Chester had been interested in signing him during the summer but he had opted to remain in full-time football with Alfreton.[79] He scored on his debut with the final goal of a 4–0 victory over Rushall Olympic on 7 January 2011, having entered the game as a 73rd minute substitute.[80] He finished the season with one goal in six appearances having sustained a collar bone injury in his first start.[81]

Bangor City[edit]

Mackin signed for Welsh Premier League side Bangor City on 17 January 2013.[82] He made his debut as an 83rd minute substitute in Bangor's 2–0 victory away at Gap Connah's Quay on 26 January 2013.[83] His first goal came in a 3–3 home draw with Prestatyn Town on 9 February 2013.[83] Mackin finished the season with 10 appearances and one goal for Bangor.[83]

Conwy Borough[edit]

He signed for Conwy Borough of the Cymru Alliance on 7 June 2013.[84] He made his debut in a 2–0 win away to Guilsfield on 17 August 2013.[85]

Rhyl[edit]

On 24 June 2014 it was announced that Levi Mackin has signed for Welsh Premier League side Rhyl for the 2014-2015 Season.

International career[edit]

Despite being born in England, Mackin was involved in two matches with the Wales under-17 team, against Scotland and Norway in 2001 and 2002 respectively, although he did not play in either and remained on the substitutes' bench.[86][87] He was called up for a training camp and game against Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 2003 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship first qualifying round, and made an appearance in this game as Wales won 2–1 to progress to the second qualifying round.[88][89] He was called into the under-19 team for the Milk Cup in July 2004 and another call up came for the 2005 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship qualifier against the Faroe Islands in October.[90]

Mackin was called into the under-21 squad for their game against England in September 2005.[91] His first and only appearance for the team came in a 1–0 defeat to Northern Ireland on 28 February 2006, in which he was substituted for Rob Davies in the 56th minute.[92] Mackin returned to the under-21 team after being named on the standby list for a game against Turkey in September.[93] He was named on standby for a two-legged 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification play-off against England in October 2008.[94] He was named in the Semi-Pro squad for a friendly against Poland in September 2009,[95] although he was forced to withdraw due to an injury.[96]

Style of play[edit]

Mackin plays as a central or defensive midfielder and has been described as "tough tackling" and a "reliable holding player".[97][98][99] He is "regularly in the right place to pick up loose balls and does not shirk away from tackles".[100] He is energetic and has been praised as a ball-winner.[101]

Personal life[edit]

Mackin's daughter was born in January 2011.[102]
