Kevin McIntyre (born 23 December 1977, Liverpool) is an English retired footballer who played as a midfielder or left-back. [1]

Playing career[edit]

Tranmere Rovers & Doncaster Rovers[edit]

After failing to establish himself with Tranmere Rovers, McIntyre played in the Football Conference from 1998 to 2004 for Doncaster Rovers (originally on loan, later a permanent deal),[2] Barrow (loan) and Chester City,[3] before the latter's promotion in 2003–04 brought a return for both club and player to Football League circles.

Macclesfield Town[edit]

McIntyre was deemed surplus to requirements by Chester, and joined Macclesfield Town in December 2004.[4] He has come back to haunt his former employers by scoring twice in wins against them since, while twice helping Macclesfield avoid relegation out of the Football League on the final day of the season. In May 2007 he signed a fresh two-year deal with the club.

Shrewsbury Town[edit]

On 3 January 2008 he joined Shrewsbury Town for a fee of £50,000.[5] On 17 January 2009, he broke his leg in the 1–1 draw away to Port Vale, keeping him out almost until the end of the season.[6] But he played in the last few games of the season and scored a crucial goal in the 1–0 play-off semi-final against Bury. This meant the game went to extra time and a penalty shootout which Shrewsbury won after Luke Daniels had an excellent game meaning the Shrews went to Wembley Stadium for the second time in three seasons.

McIntyre was almost ever-present in the 2009–10 season, and in May 2010 he signed a one-year contract extension.[7] At this point he was the oldest player at the club, celebrating his 33rd birthday midway through the season.[8] He was released by Shrewsbury on 23 May 2011 after 4 years at the club.

Accrington Stanley[edit]

He signed for Accrington Stanley on 15 July 2011.[9]

Rochdale[edit]

On 2 July 2012 McIntyre signed for Rochdale on a one-year contract after his contract at Accrington Stanley expired.

Chester[edit]

In May 2013, McIntyre returned to Chester to sign for phoenix club Chester FC on a one-year deal.[10]

Connah's Quay Nomads[edit]

On 24 July 2014 McIntyre joined Welsh Premier League side Connah's Quay Nomads after trialling for the club in pre-season.[11] He later took up a role as player-coach at the club,[12] before retiring in 2016, at the age of 38.[13]
