Macclesfield Town have named Daryl McMahon as their new head coach on a deal which will run until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

The 35-year-old will be assisted by Steve Gritt and Danny Whitaker.

After temporarily occupying the managerial hot-seat at Ebbsfleet in 2014, McMahon was named as the club’s permanent manager the following year.

Widely-regarded as one of the most promising up and coming managers outside the EFL, he secured two consecutive second-place finishes in the National League South – with the latter seeing The Fleet enjoy promotion glory following a play-off final victory over Chelmsford City in 2017.

In his first season in English football’s fifth tier, McMahon masterminded the Kent side reaching the National League play-offs – which was a phenomenal achievement given that it was their first year back at that level.

Ultimately they were to be eliminated by Tranmere Rovers – yet he gained much admiration from the footballing world in general, for what represented a hugely impressive season.

He left Stonebridge Road in November 2018 and then became a regular face on BT Sport, as part of their National League coverage.
