Patrick 'Paddy' Madden (born 4 March 1990) is an Irish footballer who plays as a striker for Football League Two club Scunthorpe United, and is a current Republic of Ireland international.

Career[edit]

Madden signed league forms with Bohemians on 8 July 2008 and became a prolific scorer in Bohemians "A" Team which reached the Grand Final of the A League.[2] He made his Bohemians first team debut as a substitute in their 2–0 win over Cobh Ramblers on 8 November 2008.[3]

Prior to the start of the 2009 season, Madden joined Shelbourne on loan on 10 February 2009.[4] Bohemians manager Pat Fenlon sent the young striker out on loan hoping for Madden to gain vital first team experience. Madden made an immediate impression for Shelbourne by impressing in pre-season and he scored in his first competitive appearance for Shels in their opening First Division match against Wexford Youths at Tolka Park on 6 March 2009.[5] He also achieved a distinct feat by scoring against his own employers for Shelbourne during an EA Sports Cup 2nd round tie at Dalymount Park on 4 May 2009.[6] Madden's loan spell at Shelbourne concluded on 29 June 2009 and he promptly returned to Bohemians.[7] During his loan spell at Shelbourne, Madden made 16 league and cup appearances and scored 8 goals.

On 29 September 2009, Madden scored his first goal for Bohs in a 1–0 victory over Derry City in the Brandywell which led to Bohs returning to the top of the league.[8]

In the 2010 season, Madden scored 9 goals in just 5 matches. This form was recognised when he was voted the Soccer Writers Association of Ireland Player of the Month for June.[9]

Madden signed for English League One side Carlisle United on 31 January 2011, for an undisclosed fee signing a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Cumbrian club.[10]

On 4 October 2012, Madden joined League One club Yeovil Town on an initial one-month loan deal with a view to extend to gain some much needed pitch time after not featuring in Carlisle's starting league squad this season. He had scored 1 goal in 3 substitute appearances for the Cumbrians this campaign.[11] On 6 October 2012, he made his debut for Yeovil and scored a two goals in a 3–1 home victory against Colchester United.[12] After going on a run of five goals in five games, he extended his loan until 2013.[13] On 1 January 2013, Madden scored a brace in the final match of his loan spell against Leyton Orient ending with nine goals from sixteen games for Yeovil. Following the game it was announced Madden had signed permanently for Yeovil Town for an undisclosed fee on a two-and-a-half-year deal.[14] Madden then went on to score 4 goals in his first two games as a permanent Yeovil Town player in the month of January. By mid February he was already League One top scorer, with 18 goals, despite only starting playing in October. In an interview with the BBC after this run of form he was described by his manager Gary Johnson as "the bargain of the season".[15] Madden's contribution of 6 goals to Yeovil's perfect January of 3 out of 3 wins didn't go unrecognised as he won the League One Player of the Month award.[16] Madden scored in the 2013 League One play-off Final as Yeovil beat Brentford 2–1 to earn promotion to the Championship for the first time in the club's history.[17] Madden ended the season with the League One golden boot with 23 goals (1 for Carlisle), plus his 2013 League One play-off Final goal to make it 24 in all competitions. On 26 November 2013, with Madden having failed to score since Yeovil's promotion to the Championship, he was placed on the transfer list by the club.[18]

On 10 January 2014, Madden signed for Football League Two side Scunthorpe United for an undisclosed fee, believed to be £300,000, signing a two-and-a-half year contract.[19][20] He scored his first goal for the club in a 5–1 win over Portsmouth on 22 February 2014. [21]

International[edit]

Madden has represented the Republic of Ireland at U18 and U19 level and made his Republic of Ireland under-21 debut against Armenia in November 2009.[22] In August 2013, Madden was called up for the first time to Republic of Ireland senior team to play Wales in a friendly. Madden made his debut coming on in the 69th minute.[23][24]
