Madden, 31, has had a prolific scoring record throughout his career in the Football League, with over 100 goals to his name whilst playing in League One before making the move to Edgeley Park from Fleetwood Town.
Having started his career in Ireland with Bohemians, Paddy first made the move to English football in January 2011, signing for League One Carlisle United, before going on to enjoy an incredibly successful spell at Yeovil Town.
Having initially joined the Glovers on loan, a run of nine goals in 16 games for the Somerset Club saw the deal made permanent. He would end up finishing the season with 23 goals, including one in Yeovil’s play-off final victory against Brentford, to secure the League One Golden Boot.
With Yeovil struggling to adapt to life in the second tier, Madden made the decision to move on, signing for League Two Scunthorpe United for a fee of around £300,000 in January 2014. Again, Madden’s arrival had an immediate impact, with his five goals that season helping the Irons to finish second and secure promotion back to League One.
Back in the third tier, Paddy found his best scoring form again, scoring 16 goals in his first full season at Glanford Park before following that up with another 23 the season after. By the time he left the Club, his 60 goals had made him 10th in Scunthorpe’s all-time top scorers list.
Making the move to Fleetwood in 2017, the goals continued to flow as Madden hit 19 in each of his two full seasons at the Club. His 43 league goals for the Cod Army make him the highest goalscorer in their EFL history.
Paddy made the move to County in March 2021 for an undisclosed fee, signing a three and a half year deal. He scored his first goal for the Club against Hartlepool United at Edgeley Park, and went on to score seven goals in 15 appearances during the rest of the season.
Paddy’s Stockport County Appearance Number (SCAN) is: 1412
