McSweeney made his Football League debut for Southend United in October 2000 when he came on as a substitute in the 1-0 home victory over York City.

He occasionally deputised at right back for Martin Booty and was given an extended run in the Blues' team in the closing weeks of the season.

A strong tackler, he showed good positional awareness and was not afraid to push forward when given the opportunity.

McSweeney agreed a new one-year contract with Southend in May 2003.
