Machin began his professional career with Chelsea, joining the club towards the end of the war after serving with the Royal Hampshire Regiment, and played over 60 games in four years there. He was signed by Argyle as a forward but it took a move to wing-half for him to break into the team on a regular basis. A broken leg suffered at the end of the 1948-49 season kept him out for over a year and despite playing a few games after regaining his fitness, he could not win back his place in the team. After leaving Argyle he played for St Austell before moving into management in local non-league football.
