Player Profile
Paul McVeigh

Date of Birth:06/12/1977
Place of Birth:Belfast, Northern Ireland
Previous Club(s):Tottenham Hotspur
Squad No(s):18

Paul made his 200th Norwich appearance during the 2005-06 season which saw him finish third in the supporters' Player of the Year voting. A clever and intuitive player who has great awareness of the players and space around him, always seeming to know what to do with the ball before it even arrives at his feet. Particularly adept at creating space for himself around the edge of the penalty area to get his shots away. Enjoyed a tremendously productive spell around Christmas last season when playing in his preferred position as an out and out striker, but was usually found on the right hand side of midfield when his eye for a pass created many chances and goals for others.
His contract was extended by twelve months during the 2005-06 campaign.

Paul McVeigh began his career at Tottenham Hotspur and progressed through the youth and reserve team ranks before earning his first professional contract at White Hart Lane.
With his first-team opportunities being limited at the North London club, Paul opted to join the Canaries in March 2000.
Despite arriving at Norwich as a recognised striker, Paul has spent most of his time at Carrow Road in wide positions - mostly on the left, but occasionally operating in a unfamiliar role on the right side of midfield.
During his time with the Canaries, he has played 172 games and chipped in with an impressive haul of 32 goals.
Despite playing a major part in the Club's 2003-04 promotion-winning campaign, Paul rarely figured in 2004-05, starting just three Barclay Premiership games.
At the end of the season he was told by manager Nigel Worthington that he was available for transfer. His immediate future at the Club therefore remains unclear.
