What we think: Former Ipswich Town trainee who made his Football League with Colchester United in 1992 before being signed by Barry Fry at Birmingham City. Signed by Martin O'Neill from Birmingham in March 1995 for a then Club record fee of 140,000. 'McGav' never really hit the form with Wycombe that fans were used to during his time at Colchester. It was certainly his connections with Col U that influenced Wanderers' fans opinions during his early days at Adams Park. Those prejudices were put to one side when he enjoyed his most successful spell - by no coincidence immediately following the departure of Alan Smith in September 1996. However, after a quiet 1997/98 season it was a serious foot injury that kept him out of the side during the following campaign, leading up to his eventual departure when he was released from Wycombe at his own request on 22nd January 1999. After brief spells at Southend and Northampton, the man sometimes unkindly referred to by Wycombe fans as 'McPasty', returned to Colchester where he managed to score more goals in 12 months than he did in nearly four years with Wycombe. Went on to play for Dagenham & Redbridge and Bury Town before an ill fated spell in Management with Harwich. Was last heard to playing amateur football in Spain.
