Paul Kinnaird

Paul KinnairdA man of many clubs, Paul Kinnaird joined Motherwell in 1988 from Dundee United, he failed to cement a regular starting berth in Jim McLean’s side at Tannadice after having joined them from Norwich City where he had started his footballing career as an apprentice.

At Fir Park he went on to play 39 games in the Motherwell midfield without scoring a single goal. Tommy McLean had purchased him for the paltry sum of £20,000 and he was sold on to St Mirren in 1989 with the club making a tidy £90,000 profit. Typically though he ended his goal drought for the Buddies in a league cup tie – against none other than Motherwell which would send the club crashing out of the competition not long after departing the Shire.

Kinnaird had no real longevity at the club’s he represented, his career took him from the Scottish top tier and he would represent clubs in the lower echelons in English football, Iceland and Ireland, Paul finished his senior playing career with Clydebank before trying his hand in the Juniors. He eventually went on to become a fitness coach at Ayr Utd.
