Paul Quinn is a solid and committed Cardiff City defender who is effective when pushing forwards. Essentially a right back, he can also play on the left flank and in midfield if required. Prior to signing for Cardiff in the summer of 2009 he had spent his entire senior career in the SPL with Motherwell, where his leadership skills led to him being appointed captain. Paul made his debut for the Bluebirds against Scunthorpe United on the opening day of the 2009-10 season but has been in and out of the side since then. He scored his first goal for City in the 4-1 win over Derby County in April 2011.
