Paul Currie (born 17 July 1985) is a Scottish footballer, who currently plays for Berwick Rangers in Scottish League Two.

Career[edit]

Currie began his youth football career with Musselburgh Windsor from their colts team through to Under 13's, winning Player of the Year, from there he joined Leith Athletic at under-15 level before joining the youth system at Cowdenbeath. After a spell at his hometown club Musselburgh Athletic, Currie had a season with Scottish Second Division side Raith Rovers before returning to Musselburgh.[1]

Berwick Rangers[edit]

Currie joined Berwick Rangers in 2009, making his debut on 19 September against Elgin City scoring Berwick's second goal in their 3–3 draw.[2][3] In all he made 75 appearances in all competitions scoring 23 goals for the club.

Hamilton[edit]

On 31 August 2011 Currie signed for Hamilton Academical after the second of two offers was accepted by Berwick.[4][5] He made his debut on 10 September against Queen of the South at Palmerston Park.[6] His first goal for the club came on 15 October against Morton in their 2–0 win,[7] going on to score from the spot against Ayr United on 29 October.[8] He was released by Hamilton upon his request in January 2012, and as FIFA regulations allow a player to play for only two Senior clubs in a season, Currie returned to Musselburgh Athletic for a third spell until the summer.[9][10][11]

Arbroath[edit]

Currie signed for Arbroath in June 2012 after joining the club for pre-season training. Despite being a first team regular at Gayfield, he left for Junior side Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic in February 2013, signing an 18-month contract.[12][13]
