Paul Willis

PAUL WILLIS

Squad No.22
Contracted until 31/05/2013
On Loan to East Fife until 03/01/13
Paul made his first team debut when he came on as a late substitute in the Scottish First Division match against
Clyde at Broadwood on 23rd February 2008. At that time Paul was just 16 years 186 days - not quite young enough to beat Alex Edwards 16 years 5 days debut on 19th February 1962 v Hibs. His home debut followed the next week against Livingston.

Paul hails from Edinburgh.  He attended Davidsons Mains Primary School and the Royal High School playing for Hearts from the age of 7 and then for half a season at Livingston at the age of 12.  Paul was at Hutcheson Vale when he was brought to Dunfermline Under 15s by Jim McArthur.  Paul had a season at U17 before being promoted to the U19 squad for the beginning of the 2007-08 season.

The right sided midfield player stood out in the U19s and not surprisingly has attracted the eye of Jim McIntyre who has given him a chance in the first team. In May 2009 Paul signed a two year contract that kept him at East End Park until 31st May 2011.  This was subsequently extended.

As at 31/08/12: Dunfermline appearances 52  (inc 21 as sub), Goals 2.
First goal v Arbroath in Co-operative Insurance Cup 31/07/10.
