Born in Bridgend, Glamorgan, McCarthy began his career with hometown team Bridgend Town, before moving to Swansea City just a season later. McCarthy also played in the Football League for Plymouth Argyle, Bradford City, Oldham Athletic, Bristol City and Exeter City, scoring 171 goals in 547 appearances.
He is the most recent player to score a top flight goal for Oldham Athletic, scoring for them in a 1-1 FA Premier League draw against Norwich City at Carrow Road on the final day of the 1993-94 season, a game which Oldham's failure to win cost them their top flight status. They have not since regained it.
McCarthy later played non-league football for Taunton Town.
On 7 December 2009, McCarthy left the club by mutual consent following a 7-2 away defeat to Stourbridge.
In July 2016 McCarthy was appointed first team coach under team manager Warren Feeney at Newport County, replacing Mike Flynn. Feeney and his assistant manager Andy Todd were sacked by Newport on 28 September 2016; McCarthy was appointed joint caretaker manager with Newport's goalkeeping player/coach James Bittner. After Graham Westley was appointed team manager effective from 10 October 2016 (with Dino Maamria his assistant manager), McCarthy was released by the club.
