We are delighted to announce that Paul Watson has today signed with Falkirk on an 18-month contract. Paul returns to the club after five years, having left Dunfermline Athletic in the summer of last year.
In his previous spell at Falkirk, Watson helped the club with back-to-back second place finishes in the Scottish Championship in season 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 before leaving for Dundee United the following year.
Having come through the youth set up at Ipswich Town, the defender was signed by Livingston in 2009 under former boss Gary Bolan. During his spell in West Lothian he played a key role in the clubs promotion’s from the Scottish Third Division in 2010 and the Scottish Second Division in 2011.
A brief spell at Raith Rovers followed before it was announced Paul had joined Falkirk in 2015. After a two-year stint, Watson left the club for an opportunity in the Scottish Premiership with Dundee United. It was under difficult circumstances Paul joined Dundee United, where the club had suffered relegation to the second tier. Signing a two-year deal with the club, promotion was achieved in his second year as the club defeated St Mirren making their swift return to the Premiership.
Prior to agreeing his return to Falkirk, Watson previously played under the leadership of Peter Grant at Dunfermline where he spent a full season at the club before departing last year.
Everyone at Superior Sports would like to wish Paul well during his time at Falkirk.
