Paul Woolston


Under-23s keeper who linked up with Ricky Sbragia's squad during the 2018/19 season.

The youngster entered the limelight when appearing against the Reds' Reserves for Newcastle United as a schoolboy in 2014, making his debut at that level. The rookie kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 triumph, making superb saves to deny Paddy McNair and Andreas Pereira. He also appeared in an Under-18s win for the Magpies against a Reds team that contained Marcus Rashford in 2015. Capped by England at Under-18 and Under-17 level, Woolston has had plenty of youth loan experience around the North East with the likes of Gateshead, Darlington, Blyth Spartans and South Shields. After a trial spell at United, he has been on the bench for Sbragia's side and started November's friendly win at Morton.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says

"I want to get into their heads and how they are thinking because that’s the only thing they can control really – how they approach different situations. The thought process should be done in training, then naturally you will do it in games."

“Mick is absolutely brilliant. His experience, his knowledge, his personality in and around the place. Mick’s tough, but he’s kind. He’s got everything that I would want in an assistant.”

“We are football players and we are on the stage of this amazing sport, but without the fans and without their passion and their love for the club, we wouldn’t be where we are.”

Juan Mata to Inside United magazine says

“Before or after the games and at the training ground, when fans come to see us we always try to see them and meet them, which takes so little of our time but is so important for so many of them.”
