Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Walthamstow, London,[2] McCoy was part of the youth teams of Leyton, Arsenal and Watford before becoming a trainee with the latter.[3][4] He was released by Watford in the summer of 2007 having not been given a professional contract, and joined League Two club Hereford United on 31 August on a one-month contract.[4][5] In December 2007, he made his debut for Isthmian League Premier Division side Harrow Borough in a 1–0 defeat to Staines Town in the Middlesex Senior Cup, which proved to be his only appearance for the club.[6][7] He returned to Isthmian League Premier Division Leyton in January 2008,[3] before signing for Wealdstone, of the same division, on 6 August 2008.[8]

Wealdstone[edit]

McCoy played impressively for Wealdstone in the 2008–09 in season, in which he made 34 appearances, and was rewarded with a new contract in June 2009.[9][10] He was named the club's Player of the Year, being awarded the Jock Law trophy, after being chosen by the club's supporters for his performances in the 2009–10 season.[11] He was also named the Players' Player of the Year,[11] for a season in which he made 50 appearances and scored one goal.[12] During this time he also worked in CCTV management in the Kings Cross area of London.[13]

Wycombe Wanderers[edit]

McCoy entered the professional game after signing for Wycombe Wanderers of League Two on a one-year contract for an undisclosed fee on 27 July 2010, after impressing on trial.[14] He made his debut for Wycombe on 10 August 2010 in their League Cup first round 2–1 defeat to Millwall at Adams Park.[15] He did not make his Football League debut until 3 January 2011 in a 1–0 home win over Gillingham,[15] before making the right back position his own ahead of Danny Foster.[16] McCoy signed a new contract with Wycombe in March 2011, tying him to the club until the summer of 2013.[17] He helped Wycombe earn promotion to League One after finishing third in League Two in the 2010–11 season, appearing 25 times.[15]

McCoy made 32 appearances for Wycombe in the 2011–12 season, which culminated in the club being relegated after one year in League One.[18] He sustained ankle ligament damage during Wycombe's 1–0 away defeat to Watford in the League Cup on 11 August 2012, and only returned to the team four months later in a 2–0 loss away to Yeovil Town in the Football League Trophy on 4 December.[19][20][21] He signed a new one-year contract in July 2013, after making 11 appearances in the 2012–13 season.[20][22]

McCoy was a key figure in Wycombe's 2013–14 season, in which they fought against relegation from League Two, and he finished the campaign with 40 appearances.[23] However, he was released by Wycombe on 15 May 2014, after four years at the club.[24]

York City[edit]

He signed for League Two club York City on a two-year contract on 9 June 2014.[25]

International career[edit]

McCoy was called up to make his debut for the Antigua and Barbuda national team in late 2010.[26]
