After progressing through the ranks at North Melbourne Kevin McMahon made his senior VFL debut in 1949 but it was a few seasons before he established himself as a regular in the side. Once he did, however, he rapidly became acknowledged as one of the finest wingmen in the league. In 1951 he won the club's most improved player trophy and was runner-up to Jock Spencer in the best and fairest voting.

Boasting tremendous pace and superb disposal skills, McMahon's decision-making was first rate, and he was consistency and reliability personified. A VFL interstate representative, he played a total of 119 VFL games for the 'Roos from 1949 to 1951, and between 1953 and 1959.
