Biography


The Scotland schoolboy internationalist joined United as a teenager, progressing through the youth system to play in the reserves by 1994-95. Gaining first team involvement during a summer tour of Finland in July 1995. He came to the attention of United fans after a cameo appearance in Dave Bowman's testimonial against Dundee before the start of the season and made his competitive debut as a substitute in the opening League match against Morton at Tannadice during United's brief spell in the First Division. Over the next three years he made just a few first team appearances each season, whilst turning out regularly for the reserves.

He joined St Mirren in 1998, but just months later moved to Stranraer. He had two and a half years at Stair Park, which included a loan spell at Queen's Park where he helped the Glasgow side clinch promotion to the Second Division. He had two seasons with Partick Thistle, and a further two with Greenock Morton before returning to Stranraer in 2005. A short-lived spell at Montrose was followed with seasons with Ayr United and East Fife before he moved to the juniors with Irvine Meadow.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Paul was born on this date in Kilwinning.

  • Morton's message to United playing their first match out with the top flight of Scottish football for 35 years was "welcome to the First Division" as they gave us an early sample of how hard a task lies ahead of us this season. But given that the United line-up contained all five summer signings, there were some encouraging signs, particularly as five players were still suspended!

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 2 Kilmarnock

    That first league victory still proved elusive.It took the award of a controversial second half penalty from which we went two behind to really stir the team into action. Kjell Olofsson pulled one back with a header, but we just couldn't summon up an equaliser despite dominating the final half hour.
