Madden over the moon after signing for Fleetwood Town

2 January 2018

New signing Paddy Madden says he is over the moon after signing a two-and-a-half-year deal with Fleetwood Town.

The striker – who in known as one of the most clinical finishers in League One – joined from Scunthorpe United for a six-figure fee after five years with The Iron.

Madden will join up with his new teammates straight away, and says he is already looking forward to working under Uwe Rosler.

“I’m delighted to be here, and I can’t wait to get going,” said Madden.

“I’ve been speaking to the gaffer and he shares the same opinions and plays the way I like to play, and knows the way I like to score goals.

“Fleetwood put a lot of interest in me and kept ringing every day and I’ve jumped at the opportunity to be here.

“I’m over the moon to sign.”

The Irishman has scored over 100 goals in spells at Carlisle United, Yeovil Town and Scunthorpe, and is looking for more at Highbury.

“I’m looking forward to a fresh start. I’m hoping to score goals here, like I have done everywhere else,” added Madden.

“I like to get in behind, and play on the last shoulder of the defender and try and get as many goals as I can, as well as creating goals. I’ll give everything in every game, and I’ll never drop my work rate. For me work rate is the most important thing and then the rest will follow.”
