Who is Paddy Kenny?

Patrick Joseph "Paddy" Kenny is a footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Leeds United.

Kenny began his career in West Yorkshire with Bradford Park Avenue before turning professional in the summer of 1998 upon signing for Neil Warnock's Bury. He was reunited with Warnock in 2002 after he joined Sheffield United where he spent much of his career and enjoyed notable success; performing in League Cup and FA Cup Semi-Finals, two Play-Off Finals, a promotion and the Blades' subsequent first Premier League campaign for twelve years in 2006.

Kenny would later sign for Warnock once again in 2010, joining Queens Park Rangers after his time at Sheffield United ended on a sour note when he spent much of his final season on the sidelines after failing a drugs test the previous summer. During his first season at the Rs, he would achieve his second promotion to the Premier League, picking up Players' and Fans' Player of the Year awards and a Championship winners medal on the way. He remained as first choice goalkeeper the next season as QPR beat relegation on the final day of the season despite a famous 3–2 defeat to Champions Manchester City. He reunited with Warnock for the fourth time by signing for Leeds United
