Profile:
Paul was an exciting prospect at Pittodrie but faced fierce competition for the main striking role. As well as his 84 first team appearances and 20 goals, he frequently turned out in the reserves and it was surprising when he didn't find the net in these games, he was that sharp.

Full name: Paul Hamilton Wright.
