1071 Josh Magennis

Biography

Versatile Northern Irish striker Magennis joined City on the August 2019 transfer deadline day to add depth to the Grant McCann’s frontline options.

Born in Bangor, Northern Ireland, Magennis spent his youth career as both a striker and goalkeeper at Glentoran before moving to the Cardiff City youth setup at 16. He sat on the first team bench as a goalkeeper in 2007 but when he signed his first professional contract a year later he had reverted to a forward role. Magennis moved to Aberdeen in 2010, as part of his nations of the United Kingdom tour, and was a regular or the Dons for four seasons, playing both as striker and right back. Two seasons at Kilmarnock followed, during which he scored goals regularly enough to encourage Charlton Athletic to pay a six figure sum for his services. Magennis spent two seasons at The Valley, hitting a double figure goal tally in both seasons. In July 2018 a £200,000 fee saw Josh switch to Bolton Wanderers, where their relegation and financial meltdown hampered his progress.

Magennis played for Northern Ireland under-17s as a goalkeeper but his subsequent appearances at under-19, under-21 and, since 2010, the senior team have been up front. Amongst his senior international goals are efforts against Greece and Germany.
