Paddy Butcher often didn’t need too much invitation when in front of goal; the forward finding the net regularly during his time playing for us. In all, he scored more than 30 goals after first making his debut for the club during the 1983-4 campaign. For us, that wasn’t a season in which much happened as a team. For Butcher, however, he topped the scoring charts ahead of Ricky Marshall (13) and Trevor Metcalfe (12). It’s also fair to say that he wasn’t averse to making sure his contributions were bobby dazzlers.
As Boro’ stepped up to the Isthmian League in the 1984-5 campaign, Butcher’s role took on a more deeper look. More often than not, he turned provider from midfield; the likes of Jim Beech, Kevin Lowe and Steve Armsby leading the line in attack. That we made room for Butcher where we could shows you how important he was to our efforts. It’s only right, then, that he was rewarded; Boro’ winning the 1985-6 Vauxhall Opel League Division Two North title.
Paddy Butcher: After Boro’
After two spells with us in which he scored 32 times, he eventually moved on for good in 1986; joining Ware. Boro’ could have well done with his influence as we struggled with life in Division One. He moved on once more in 1988; this time to Royston Town. And, at the Crows, he’d make just as huge an impact as he had done while at Broadhall Way.
