McCrory arrived at Pompey on loan until January from parent club Burton Albion on deadline day in August 2017.

The full back progressed through the youth ranks at Plymouth, before pursuing a pair of loan spells at Port Vale – in both 2008 and 2009 – before another short-term move to Grimsby followed in 2009/10.

Made a permanent switch to Dagenham and Redbridge on February 1st 2010, quickly establishing himself as first-choice left back.

Left the Daggers following the side’s relegation to Sky Bet League Two in 2012, before signing for Burton in June 2012 under then manager Gary Rowett.

Netted his first goal for the side against former club Dagenham in a 3-2 win that November, and made 72 appearances for the Brewers across 2014/15 and 2015/16, as they achieved back-to-back promotion from the basement tier to the Championship.

The full back has also represented Republic of Ireland at Under-18 and Under-19 level.
