BIOGRAPHY

Paul Clough began his career at Blackbrook before joining the Saints and his career so far has been nothing short of outstanding. Paul is one of the best young back-rowers in the game and international recognition must surely result from his success at club level. He made his debut in July 2005 against Hull and has remained in the First Team picture ever since.

Paul is one of several youngsters to have come through the Academy system at Knowsley Road and on to First Team success. He was a member of the Under 16s Squad which beat the mighty Penrith Panthers side in Australia and went on to reach a Grand Final with the Under 18s. Paul is a level-headed youngster who has already scored at Wembley in a Challenge Cup final in 2007 and won another Cup Winners medal in 2008. He also scored a memorable hat-trick against Warrington at the Halliwell Jones stadium during the same season. Paul appeared at Old Trafford in the 2008 Grand Final and already has a wealth of big match experience behind him. His enthusiasm and work-rate are invaluable to the team and there must surely be more success to come.

The 2009 season proved to be a roller coaster season for the Saints. The ride however, ultimately ended in disappointment as the Saints trophy cabinet was laid bare for the first time since the 2003 campaign. Some sparkling performances were punctuated with below par matches as the club shaped a new team for the future and youth was given its head. Paul maintained his consistent performances as the season progressed.

The 2010 and 2011 seasons continued in the same roller coaster fashion. In 2011 not only had the club got to contend with playing all their home matches at Widnes, following the sale of Knowsley Road, but a series of injuries threatened to derail the quest for silverware.

Never the less the players responded magnificently by reaching an eleventh consecutive Challenge Cup Semi Final and a record breaking sixth successive Grand Final. However, a sour taste of disappointment featured as the Saints lost to Wigan in the Challenge Cup and Leeds came back strongly in the last twenty minutes of the Grand Final to dampen the spirits. The season was marked by the emergence of young players who cemented their positions in the first team and demanded their inclusion in the big games. As ann established first team forward, Paul helped guide the youngsters as they marched bravely towards the Grand Final.

Paul contined the new decade as a hardworking forward who found favour with successive coaches at the Saints.
