Biographical Text

Liverpool spotted McDade playing for Scottish juniors, Yoker Athletic, and duly signed him in 1925.

He was an inside-forward at the time, but in the two seasons assisting the Liverpool reserve team, he was used as a half-back.

He signed for Exeter City in the summer of 1927, without having made a league appearance for Liverpool. However, his Grecians debut came in a 2-1 win at Southend United in February 1928.

Although he retained his place in the side for the following game, they were to be the only two matches he featured in.

After leaving Exeter he returned to Scotland and signed for Morton, and after spell with Yeovil and Petters United, he then signed for Clapton Orient in 1930, but he never featured in their first team.

"In the course of an interview with the “Post” last night, Mr. David Pratt, the manager of the Notts County club, said that Mr. Patrick McDade had been appointed chief scout, and that he had also signed a professional form. McDade who is a wing half, formerly played for Liverpool, and for the last two seasons was at Clapton"
