Biographical Text

Striker Liam McAlinden joined the Grecians on Tuesday 31st May 2016 following his release by Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 22-year-old frontman left Wolves this summer after spending the last couple of months of the 2015/16 season on loan at Crawley Town, following a short stay at League 1 Shrewsbury Town earlier in the campaign.

After nine years in the academy at Molineux, Liam turned pro with Wolves in 2010, and would play a part in the club’s League 1 title-winning season in 2013-14, scoring his first senior goal in the Football League Trophy against Walsall before a first league goal in a 1-0 win at MK Dons.

His Football League pedigree was fleshed out with two loan spells at Shrewsbury Town either side of a further two temporary spells with Fleetwood Town.

Though he was born in Cannock, Staffordshire, Liam represented Northern Ireland at under-21 level (qualifying through his grandfather) before switching allegiance to the Republic of Ireland, thanks to his parents, in 2014.

He was released by the Grecians at the end of the 2017/18 season.

In July 2018 he signed for League 2 rivals Cheltenham Town. In December 2018, McAlinden was on loan at Brackley Town. After his loan spell finished he joined Kidderminster Harriers on another loan.
