Neale Terence McDermott (born 8 March 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder. He is currently playing for Maltese Premier League side Marsaxlokk.

Playing career[edit]

He started his career at Newcastle United before joining Fulham on the January transfer deadline day in 2003.[1] While at Fulham, McDermott had two loan spells at Swindon Town[2] and Darlington.[3]

He signed for Carlisle United on 1 August 2006[4] after a successful trial after being released by Fulham in May 2006.[5]

After making only 15 appearances in two years at Carlisle, McDermott's contract was terminated by mutual consent.[6] Neale joined Dundee on trial on Monday 23 June and travelled to Malta with the Dundee squad in an attempt to earn a deal at Dens Park. His attempt failed and he left the club.

On 3 November 2008 McDermott began training with Grimsby Town, with a view to signing a permanent deal with the club. In December he joined Wrexham on trial in an attempt to earn a professional contract with the North Wales club. He's now playing for La Louvière in Belgian third division.

On 21 July 2009 McDermott played for Gateshead on trial against Durham City[7] and signed for the club on 29 July.[8] McDermott made his competitive debut for Gateshead on 29 August coming on as a substitute against Cambridge United.[9] He scored his first goal for Gateshead on 26 December 2009 away at Barrow.[10] McDermott was released by Gateshead at the end of the 2009-10 season.[11]
