Mark Kennedy Appointed As First Team Coach

6 December 2018

Macclesfield Town are pleased to announce that former Manchester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Republic of Ireland international Mark Kennedy has joined the club in the capacity of First Team Coach.

Mark began his career at Millwall and from there moved to Liverpool in a deal which made him the most expensive teenager in British football history.

At home either at left back or on the left wing, Kennedy made 16 appearances for The Reds, before moved to Manchester City after several loan deals.

Mark helped City return to the Premier League in his first season at the club and would make 66 appearances in light blue before switching to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Once again, Mark enjoyed promotion to the Premier League - scoring the opening goal in Wolves' 3 - 0 Play-Off Final victory over Sheffield United in 2003.

Kennedy made 174 appearances at Molineux over a five year period, before turning out for Crystal Palace, Cardiff City and Ipswich Town towards the end of his career.

Mark was also capped by the Republic of Ireland on 34 occasions, although he was unfortunately ruled out of the 2002 World Cup through injury.

The Irishman retired from the playing side of the game back in 2012 and since hanging up his boots has pursued a coaching career within the game.

Initially joining the setup at Portman Road, Mark went on to become a highly respected Academy Coach back at the Etihad Stadium with Manchester City.


Mark brings a wealth of knowledge with him to the club and we wish him every success during his time at the Moss Rose.
