Club career[edit]

Sheffield Wednesday[edit]

Born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, McMahon started his career with Sheffield Wednesday.[1] Signed as a trainee, he made his first senior start playing the full ninety minutes in a South Yorkshire Derby against Second Division rivals Barnsley on 13 March 2004 at Hillsborough in front of 25,664 supporters. The results was a 2–1 victory with Guylain Ndumbu-Nsungu grabbing both goals either side of half time. He continued to make eight more starting appearances that season and also make two as a substitute. Next season, McMahon made 17 more appearances and scored his first two senior goals, the first of which was a drive against Blackpool to gain a 2–1 win and the first points of the season. However, McMahon was released by Wednesday at the end of the 2004–05 season.[2]

Notts County[edit]

McMahon was signed by Notts County on a one-year deal in July 2005 following his release by Sheffield Wednesday.[2] McMahon left County at the end of the 2005–06 season.[3]

York City[edit]

McMahon was signed by York City on 18 August 2006 after he left Notts County.[4] He was released by York at the end of the 2006–07 season on 16 May 2007.[5] Following his release, McMahon said: "We did have a good team but, towards the back half of the season, if anyone went to see me playing for the reserves they will have seen me stand out. I was scoring quite a few goals and doing really well. I also lost a stone in weight and did everything the gaffer asked of me so I was a bit gutted not to get a chance to do it in the first team."[6]

Gainsborough Trinity[edit]

McMahon joined Conference North side Gainsborough Trinity on 23 July 2007.[7] On 25 February 2012 McMahon joined Northern Premier League Premier Division club Matlock Town on a one-month loan.[8] He returned to Trinity and was an unused substitute in the club's play-off matches, which saw them lose in the final to Nuneaton Town.[9] He was released by Trinity in May 2012.[10]

Matlock Town[edit]

McMahon signed for Matlock permanently on 27 June 2012,[11] and was their top scorer in 2012–13 with 24 goals.[12] He returned to Gainsborough on a one-month loan on 22 November 2013,[13] and scored five goals from five matches.[14]

Later career[edit]

McMahon joined Conference North club North Ferriby United on 7 February 2014.[15] He was an unused substitute in their play-off semi-final matches, but played as a substitute in the 5–2 win over Bridlington Town in the East Riding Senior Cup final on 13 May 2014.[16] McMahon moved to Australia and signed for Australian Football West Premier League club Floreat Athena later in 2014.[17]

International career[edit]

McMahon was called up to the England C team for their game against Malta in February 2009.[18] He started the match as captain, before being substituted in the 46th minute, as England won 4–0.[19]
