McCalmont's first taste of international football came for Northern Ireland U19s in the UEFA EURO U19 Championship Qualifiers against Poland, Serbia and Kazakhstan respectively. 

The midfielder broke into the first team at Leeds United for the first time in 2019/20 and was included in several match day squads in the Sky Bet Championship. Furthermore, his first professional appearances for Leeds came in the EFL Cup against Salford City and Stoke City. 

McCalmont's progress was rewarded with his first senior call up for Northern Ireland, making a 31 minute debut in a 1-0 win over Luxembourg.
