Paddy Boyle signs for United

Tonight we are delighted to announce the signing of 29 year old left back Paddy Boyle on a two year deal.

Manager Ian McCall said :”I am thrilled to get Paddy to sign as in my opinion he was the best left back in our league last season. I signed him when I was at Partick and he did well for me there and he will have no problems fitting into our squad. With Paddy our left back and Nicky right back we have the best full backs in the league and it means we can play a certain way. He is a quick player,a good age and has good experience. There’s no question he can play at the level above as well. This signing will also mean Mikey Donald can play further forward.”

Paddy started his career with Everton and has also represented Scotland at under 19 level. He has played well over 60 times for Airdrie in the last two seasons and was voted in last seasons PFA Scotland team of the year for League One.
