Mauchlen started with Irvine Meadow before joining Kilmarnock in July 1978, where he scored ten goals in one hundred and twenty-three games, of which nine goals and one hundred and twelve starts and six games from the bench were in the League. He then moved to Motherwell four years later, in July 1982, for £40,000, where he met up with Gary McAllister. After scoring four times in seventy-six League games, starting in all but one, the two were both sold to Leicester City for a combined fee of £250,000 on 18th August 1985. At Leicester he made two hundred and twenty-eight League starts and another eleven from the bench and scored eleven League goals. He also scored once in seventeen starts and one substitute appearance in League Cup ties but failed to score in six starts and one game from the bench in F.A. Cup ties, and nine starts in Full Members Cup-ties. In the closing weeks of their championship season of 1991-92 season he went on a month’s loan to Leeds United and, while he never set foot on the pitch in the famous white shirt, he was an unused substitute in the 5-1 thrashing of Wimbledon at Elland Road on 14th March that season, and again in the 0-0 home draw with West Ham United. He had been largely overlooked by new Leicester Manager Brian Little and when Leeds did not extend his loan period he moved back north of the border to Hearts. He remained at Hearts from 22nd July 1992 to 25th August 1993, making Sixteen Scottish League starts and two substitute appearances without scoring, together with two League Cup, three Scottish Cup and two European games. He joined up with Irish League club Glenavon on 1st December 1993. He arrived at Ballymena United, in July 1995, where he scored twice and made twenty-two appearances in the following season, before leaving Ireland in May 1996. He returned to the Midlands with Leicester United, until they went out of existence and then had spells with Corby Town, VS Rugby, Hinchley Town and then coached his old team Glenavon and Oadby Town. Mauchlen now resides in Leicester and works for British Gas as a storeman and also does Ambassador duties for Leicester City. His son, Iain was also a professional footballer with Cowdnbeath.
