Specifically a full back, Molyneux began his career with Everton in 2000.
Having progressed through the club's youth academy, Molyneux made his debut for the reserve team at the age of 16 and developed a reputation as a set piece specialist.
He was eventually pushed further forward after the emergence of Laurence Wilson who was preferred in the left full back position.
He joined Southampton in 2009, where he made his first team debut and spent time on loan with Port Vale before being released from his contract in the summer of 2010.
After a spell with Plymouth Argyle, he signed for Accrington Stanley and after an impressive season, he was signed by Crewe Alexandra in July 2013. He joined Rochdale on loan in November 2013, and re-joined Accrington Stanley on loan in January 2014 and October 2014.
He signed with Tranmere Rovers in January 2015 and after their relegation at the end of the 2014-15 season the Liverpudlian signed for Morecambe on a two year deal becoming Jim Bentley’s second summer signing.
