Jonathan Duncan "Jon" Maloney (born 3 March 1985) is an English footballer who plays for Wetherby Athletic as a defender although he has also been utilised as a striker.


Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Maloney started his career at Doncaster Rovers.[2] He joined York City on a month's loan on 5 January 2005.[3] This loan was extended for another month in late January.[4] This was extended for a third month in late February.[5] Maloney was released by Doncaster at the end of the 2004–05 season.[6]

Following his release by Doncaster, Maloney went to the United States to play for the University of Montevallo men's soccer team.[7] After four years at the University he returned to England and was invited to pre-season training with former club Doncaster, although he stated he was looking to earn a contract with another former club, York.[8]

Following a successful trial he signed for Conference North side Harrogate Town on 27 July.[9][10] Maloney would make 33 appearances, scoring his only goal of the season against Vauxhall Motors.[citation needed] He went on to sign for Harrogate Railway Athletic.[11]
