Date of birth
Malachi began his career in Crewe’s youth academy, progressing through their youth team and eventually into the U23 side before leaving in the summer of 2019, joining Wycombe in 2020.
Throughout the 2019/20 season, Linton played for Lowestoft Town and proved his pedigree in non-league by scoring 13 goals in just 10 appearances.
Malachi’s impressive form saw Ainsworth snatch him up in time for the 2020/21 season. Although without a senior appearance in the Chairboys maiden second tier campaign, Malachi featured on the bench, played for a short time out on loan at Slough Town and impressed behind the scenes enough to warrant a contract extension for 2021/22.
