Player Review: Musselwhite

Paul Musselwhite took a few games to settle in when he first joined the team, but soon became the lynch pin in the Heed’s defence.
There was a few worry’s of Paul’s age maybe stopping him from moving freely about the box and getting down to stop shots. But the 39 year old turned back the years while in a Heed shirt, his command and presence in the box was great to witness.
Paul kept 10 clean sheets in the last 13 games of the season, a fantastic achievement no matter level of football.
Although Mussa had a great end to the season will he be here next season?? Only time will tell.

The Conf North does allow 5 substitutes, maybe the heed will retain Paul for next year as cover or in competition with another keeper.
Musselwhite’s experience is very had to come by and has been invaluable to the Tynesiders, who knows could Paul become part of the backroom staff as a player coach next year?

Season Rating 9 out of 10.
