'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former striker so proud

Former Dundee United striker Paddy Connolly will be a really proud man the first time his son Aidan wears the famous tangerine shirt.

The seventeen-year-old prospect is following in his father's footsteps having recently arrived at Tannadice on a two-year deal from Queen's Park. Connolly senior previously served a decade with the club after originally beginning his career with them in the mid-eighties.

"I really enjoyed my years with Dundee United. That's where I learned to play, and hopefully Aidan will do the same," he told the Dundee Courier. "I think it's the right club for him. They've got Jackie McNamara in charge of the team alongside Simon Donnelly.

"It's a massive challenge for him, moving to United from the Third Division. It's a huge leap going into the Premier League where there is no hiding place," Connolly senior continued. "But he has the ability as a footballer, he works hard and has a good attitude. He's only 17 and will be looking forward to getting the chance to playing at that level."
