In November 2006 Paul Clough was promoted to train full-time with the Saints' first team squad. He had also been training with the squad in the 2005 season, but his performances have seen him included in Saints elite 25 man squad for the upcoming season.
He is expected to compete for a regular first team spot over the next few years and was given the number 22 jersey for the 2007 season.
Paul Clough will offer Mick Potter a young local British feeling to the Saints pack. This is another example of Saints continuing investment in local talent.
19-year-old Paul Clough was promoted from the Academy set-up to the first-team squad for the 2006 season and was officially announced as a squad member for 2007's Super League XII.
Paul Clough is perhaps a victim of St Helens success with their Treble winning season in 2006. Clough is also the victim of having to try to break into a team that already has four internationals in the back row with Chris Flannery, Jon Wilkin, Lee Gilmour and new signing Tony Puletua although he and Puletua may feature more predominately in the front row this season.
Paul’s performances for the Saints Academy have shown great potential and he has represented and captained England throughout his junior career.
He was awarded the number 17 jersey for 2009's Super League XIV season.
2015 - 2015 Season
He featured in Round 1 (Leigh Centurions) to Round 20 (Hunslet Hawks) then in Round 22 (Leigh Centurions) to Round 23 (Halifax). Clough played in Qualifier 1 (Sheffield Eagles) to Qualifier 7 (Halifax). Paul played in the £1 Million Game (Wakefield Trinity Wildcats). He also featured in the Challenge Cup in Round 4 (Workington Town) to Round 5 (Hull Kingston Rovers). He scored against Doncaster (1 try).
2016 - 2016 Season
Clough did not feature in any of the pre-season friendlies.
