McCall made his senior debut in the UEFA Cup tie against Skeid in the modest surroundings of the Ullevaal Stadium, Oslo in 1979, but just a year later became a key member of the (almost) all-conquering 1980-81 team, picking up a UEFA Cup winners medal at the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam after Town's 5-4 aggregate victory over AZ '67 Alkmaar. In November of that year he started an impressive run of one-hundred and seventy-five consecutive first-team appearances, a sequence that ended in the 77th minute of an FA Cup 6th Round tie at Everton's Goodison Park in March 1985, when he was red-carded by referee Robinson for a foul on Trevor Steven.
McCall left for Sheffield Wednesday in 1987, a five-year stay plagued by injury, later playing for his home town club Carlisle United (on loan), Plymouth Argyle (twice) and Torquay United. He rejoined Town in 2001 as a scout (under George Burley) and became reserve team coach (under Joe Royle). Under current Blue's boss Jim Magilton he holds the position of Chief Scout. More
