Maguire joined Leeds in July 1986 on the Youth Training Scheme and made enough progress for United to offer him a contract in July 1988. Playing in a Northern Intermediate League game against Sheffield United, his prompt action may have saved the life of an opponent when Scott Exton swallowed his tongue after a collision. Maguire provided the first vital medical attention and Exton recovered following an overnight stay in hospital. He made both of his appearances for United in May 1988 in the final two games of the season, debuting at home to Crystal Palace at inside-left, and he was again in the No. 10 shirt at Birmingham City for the final game. In April 1989 he began a four month loan with Swedish club IFK Osby. In September 1989 he began a month’s loan with Huddersfield Town, joining the Terriers for £10,000, when the loan period was completed. He did not establish himself at Leeds Road, scoring once in seven League appearances, six from the bench, and was loaned to Stockport County in September 1990, for two games, both as substitute. At the end of the season, in June 1991, he was released and joined Emley. He later played in Scotland with Elgin City, where he played three games as a substitute, making his debut on 5th August 2000 in a 1-2 defeat at Brechin City in the Scottish Third Division. Three days later he featured in a 0-3 defeat at Cowdenbeath in the Scottish League Cup, before his second final game in the League when he came on in the 0-2 home defeat to Hamilton Academical on 12th August 2000. He joined Scottish Highland League team Forres Mechanics on 30th August 2000 and later moved to another Highland League side in Lossiemouth.
