Macedo was a goalkeeper who spent almost his entire career with Fulham, playing 391 matches between 1955 and 1968. He played also for Colchester United and for South African teams Durban City and Highlands Power. He retired in 1973. He was considered the finest goalkeeper never to win a full international cap for England. He couldn't be called up because he was born in Gibraltar and that makes him undoubtedly the best ever Gibraltarian goalkepeer.
Nicknamed "the Rock", Macedo was a strong keeper, always brave enough to dive into the feet of his opponents or to jump to take crosses amongst elbows and knees despite the attacking aggression of that time; he had great personality, commanding his area; he showed great display of agility, interception and incredible positional sense; he could also deliver strong and quite accurate long passes to his teammates. Probably the best goalkeeper in Fulham's history, he could make incredible saves but also some avoidable mistakes. His performances slowly started to have a downfall after he got an injury due to a kick received from an opponent during a match against Everton.
