Paul Lorraine has called time on his career at Punjab United
The centre-back was the key player for the club as they worked their way from the Kent County Leagues through to the SCEFL Premier Division.
He is key to say though that it is just goodbye and not farewell.
“I loved every moment playing for Punjab United, it was a fantastic decision to join.
“Our football relationship has come to an end but our friendship has not. I will always be at the other end of the phone for all associated with the club. I want to place on record an enormous thank you to all the players I played with at Punjab United, Chipie and his management team and all of the supporters that come to watch. I will miss you all.
“I have no doubt that the club go from strength to strength and continue to improve season after season.
“I started playing men’s football at Welling United aged 16, so football has been a huge part of my life. I captained every club I represented which makes me proud when looking back. Therefore I am not officially retiring but it will have to be the right club for me to carry on playing.”
As Paul Lorraine departs, our roving reporter caught up with him for some choice words.
I can safely that say that I speak for everyone in thanking him for his work and commitment and wishing him the very best for the future, thank you Paul Lorraine.
