Paul Woolston Visits Fans Museum

Well it’s not every day a professional player comes and thanks you for helping him get back to what he loves, playing footy.

Everyone meet Paul Woolston. At a young age Paul found himself being released by Sunderland and me being me, pointed him to GatesheadFC to get him back in between the sticks.

4 years later, Paul had spells with Newcastle and loan spells down south, as well as locally, but to then get told the fantastic news that Manchester United have signed him really made me feel extremely proud of him and just how much determination he has to keep succeeding.
A lesson to be learned, keep fighting for what you want In life.

Thanks you for the visit today Paul, lovely to see your dad Steve and sister Rachael too. Thank you for the England football team U17 shirt, truly proud of you and the family for their continued support in you. Oh, and guess what he will be wearing at the Checker-trade Final?
