Paul Hangs Up His Boots

Fri, 28th Mar 2003 12:00am
Paul Kane has decided to end his long and successful career in football by retiring from the game at the age of 37. Speaking to the Edinburgh Evening News today, he said:-

"I'd felt recently that I wasn't playing up to the standards I expect, that my body was telling me it was time to pack it in. I'd picked up three calf injuries in the past 15 months, which was annoying as I hadn't been troubled in the previous 19 years. I felt my body was telling me the time had come."

"I didn't want to be remembered as a guy who'd hung around living off past glories and content to hope for a seat on the bench. So, rather than hang on for the end of the season, I've decided to move over and give some of the young lads at Clyde a chance to show Alan Kernaghan what they can do."

Paul's career began 20 years ago at the club he supported as a boy, Hibs. Spells at Oldham, Aberdeen, Viking Stavanger Norway and St.Johnstone followed before he arrived at Broadwood. Whilst indicating that he will concentrate on his new business at the moment, he hasn't ruled out a return to football to take on a coaching role.

Look out for an interview with "Kano" on the Website very soon.

Clyde FC would like to wish Paul every success in his future ventures.
