Career[edit]

McAuley began his career at Liverpool, but made his senior debut on loan at Tranmere Rovers.[1] He joined Plymouth Argyle for £12,000 in 1974 and won promotion to the Second Division in his first season with the club.[2] He moved to Charlton Athletic in 1976, where he played for two seasons, and then returned to Tranmere.[2] McAuley joined Carlisle United the following year and spent two seasons with the club, but did not play regularly.[1] He finished his playing career in non-league football with Formby.[2]

He returned to Liverpool in 1988 as a coach, having worked with the Mersyside Youth Association from 1982.[3] He was responsible for the club's centre of excellence programme and was involved in the youth team that won the FA Youth Cup for the first time in 1996.[3] He then worked in the club's new youth academy and managed the reserve team before leaving Liverpool in 2009.[3][4] Robbie Fowler, Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard were among those who came through the academy during McAuley's time at Liverpool.[5] McAuley's son, Hugh, made 100 appearances in the Football League for Cheltenham Town.[2][6]
