GETTING TO KNOW | PAUL TAYLOR

26 June 2017

Get to know City's latest signing Paul Taylor a little better with some interesting facts about the 29 year-old attacker.

  • Born in Liverpool, Taylor spent time in the youth systems at both of the Cities major professional clubs, Liverpool and Everton.
  • His next step as an academy player was at Manchester City and he spent approximately a year with the future Premier League Champions, between 2005 and 2006.
  • Paul's first season in senior football (2007/08), with Vauxhall Motors, saw him score 17 times in the Conference North.
  • His first appearance in the Football League was during the opening day of the 2008/09 season for Chester City and it could have gone better. Coming on as a substitute, his side slipped to a 6-0 defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge.
  • In late 2008, Taylor opted for a fresh start and signed for Belgian fifth division side, Montegnée.
  • Although ultimately, he never made an appearance for Anderlecht, the Belgian giants signed Taylor from Montegnée in December 2009 but he was soon loaned out to Charleroi.
  • Ipswich Town paid £1.5 Million to acquire his services from Peterborough United back in August 2012.
  • Paul managed 12 goals for Peterborough United during their 2011/12 campaign in the Championship
  • On the six occasions that Taylor scored for Peterborough United last season, they went on to win the game. So a Taylor goal now equates to a Bradford win, let's hope it works out like that during the upcoming 2017/18 campaign...
