Anderson Announces Retirement
Saturday, 15th Jun 2024 12:22

Former Town winger Paul Anderson has announced his retirement, aged 35.

Anderson was with the Blues between July 2013 and August 2015 having signed from Bristol City in a deal which saw Jay Emmanuel-Thomas move in the other direction, making 45 starts and 25 sub appearances, scoring seven goals, most famously Town’s equaliser in the 1-1 2014/15 play-off semi-final first leg draw with Norwich City at Portman Road.

Having been a trainee at Hull City, Melton Mowbray-born Anderson joined Liverpool’s academy.

Following loan spells with Swansea and Nottingham Forest, he moved to the City Ground on a permanent basis in 2009, before joining the Robins for a season in 2012.

After his Town release, Anderson, who had won England caps at U19 level, signed for Bradford and spent spells with Northampton, Mansfield, Plymouth and finally back to the Cobblers, who he left in the summer of 2020.

An excellent signing for us and we definitely got the better of the deal with JET moving to Bristol City. After much acclaim and a bright start JET certainly back-fired in a Town shirt!

After putting in a MoM performance against Norwich he was strangely let go. He was a hole hearted player who always gave one hundred percent. I can remember me and my mates thinking when he was released that he was one of the few players in a pretty average squad that done himself justice.

I always liked him as a player always seemed to give 100% but tbh thought he retired years ago

Regardless of the eventual outcome , he'll always be remembered for the goal
