Dion McGhee


An attacking midfielder who has been with the club for some time.

McGhee has fine control and a neat touch, showing an ability to also operate just behind the strikers.

He came off the bench in the final game of the 2016/17 Under-18 season against Reading and created a goal for Ethan Hamilton during a 4-2 defeat.

The Oldham-born youngster, who can fill the no. 10 role in the middle of the park, made 13 appearances over the course of the 2017/18 campaign and signed his first professional contract for the Reds in May 2018.

Developing physically, he really pushed on towards the end of the 2018/19 season, his final year in the Under-18s, and managed five goals from 22 appearances (13 as a starter).
