|* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only.
Born in Antwerp but raised in Lancashire, McDonough joined his local side Oldham Athletic from school as an apprentice in 1980. He played in 183 games in six seasons at Boundary Park before signing for Luton Town in an £87,000 transfer deal. He represented the Bedfordshire club 105 times in five seasons. Injuries plagued his time at Luton, and he was sidelined for Luton's famous League Cup victory over Arsenal in 1987–88, though he did appear in the defeat to Nottingham Forest a year later. He was Kevin Keegan's first signing for Newcastle United in 1991, but only three matches into his time on Tyneside a snapped Achilles tendon forced an end to his career.
