Jim Magilton, a gifted midfielder with an exquisite range of passing, retired from playing in 2006 after a seven year spell at Ipswich Town.

After hanging up his boots Magilton made no secret of his desire to go into coaching and was appointed manager at former club Ipswich Town in 2006.

After two successful seasons where the team finished 14th and 8th in the league, Magilton was sacked by the club after missing out on the play-offs in his third season.

Jim Magilton wasn’t out of the game for long joining Queens Park Rangers as manager in June 2009 on a two year contract.

This proved to be a short lived appointment as he left the club by mutual consent six months later.

Magilton then went onto assist Michael O’Neill at Shamrock Rovers and then had a short spell at Australian A-League side Melbourne Victory before taking on his current role as elite performance director at the Irish Football Association and manager of their U21s side.
