Lloyd Joshua Macklin (born 2 August 1991) is an English footballer who currently plays for Chippenham Town.


Macklin went on a pre-season tour of Austria with Swindon Town in the summer of 2007 when he was only 15 years old. He came through the ranks at Swindon and made a senior appearance in the home pre-season friendly with Bristol City. He then became the youngest ever player to represent Swindon at first team level, when he came on as a substitute against Brentford in the Football League Trophy in September 2007. He went on to feature for the youth and reserve teams as the 2007–08 campaign was played out, and continued working his way up through 2008–09. He made a couple of first team appearances towards the end of 2008–09.[2]

On 19 February 2010, he joined Torquay United on loan for a month before joining on a permanent basis on 30 June 2010 as a free agent, following Swindon Town's failure to offer him a new contract. In October 2010, Macklin signed a contract extension that kept him at Plainmoor for a further two-years, until 2013. Macklin scored his first goal for Torquay and in professional football against Cheltenham Town in the Football League Trophy on 30 August 2011, in a 2–1 defeat.[3]

At the end of the 2012–13 season, Macklin was one of seven players who did not feature in manager Alan Knill's plans and as a result was released.
