Biography


McGovern joined Celtic in July 2001 from home town junior club Enniskillen Town United. His first involvement with the first team squad was as a substitute at the Camp Nou during Celtic's Champions League match against Barcelona. Later that season, McGovern moved on loan to Stranraer, where he made nineteen appearances and the following season, joined St. Johnstone on a one-month emergency loan, playing once. At Celtic he managed to pick up a Scottish Cup winners medal in 2004 and 2007, both times as an unused substitute.

On 17 June 2008, McGovern agreed a pre-contract move to Dundee United, signing a one-year deal. He failed to make a first-team appearance for United and Manager Craig Levein confirmed McGovern's departure in May 2009.

McGovern moved to Ross County in late June 2009 and enjoyed a successful first season with the club, making 50 appearances. These included the 2010 Scottish Cup Final which Ross County lost 3–0 to McGovern's former club Dundee United and his full international debut.

In his second season at the club McGovern saved two penalties in a 4–3 penalty shoot-out win against Partick Thistle in the Scottish Challenge Cup semi-final on 10 October 2010. He played in the final on 10 April 2011, as Ross County lifted the trophy after a 2–0 win against Queen of the South at McDiarmid Park. McGovern left Ross County at the end of the 2010–11 Scottish First Division season.

After leaving Ross County, McGovern joined up with St. Johnstone for pre-season training before he signed for Falkirk on 20 July 2011.

On 9 June 2014, McGovern signed for Scottish Premiership club Hamilton Academical.
