611 Paul Blackburn

Biography

Goalkeeper Paul Blackburn – not to be confused with 1970s netminder Eddie Blackburn – played a solitary Associate Members Cup match for City in May 1984, amid an injury crisis that affected both Tony Norman and John Davies, the club’s two senior keepers at that time. He also joined City on their post-season tour of Florida, playing against Tampa Bay Rowdies.

Blackburn was from Lowestoft and rejected the chance to join Ipswich Town as a young man in favour of studying French at Hull University. So began an association with several non-league clubs in the East Riding and in Lincolnshire, before his two month non-contract spell at Hull City in April and May 1984.
