Paddy Madden 'buzzing' after making permanent move to Yeovil Town
Hotshot Paddy Madden hopes reaching ten goals for the season goes some way to repaying the faith placed in him by a club he has loved since day one.
The Irish striker this week completed a permanent switch from Carlisle United, having proved a revelation since moving south on loan.
The 22-year-old showed few signs of rustiness having found chances few and far between with the Cumbrians, and raced to double figures for the season with a brace against Leyton Orient on Tuesday.
Madden revealed his delight at agreeing a move to Huish Park that was first mooted just four games into his temporary spell that started in October.

He said: “I am buzzing. Gary Johnson gave me my chance, he had faith in me, brought me down here and gave me a chance with league football.
“I am hopefully repaying that now. I have loved it from the first day with the fans and everyone around the club making me feel welcome. I am buzzing to be here on a permanent basis.
“It is very good for me and my confidence that Yeovil after such a short time and having played four or five games wanted to sign me straight away.
“It is very pleasing and I just want to keep doing all I can for Yeovil Town to get them closer to the play-off places.
“I think our aim is reaching the play-offs and I think we are good enough to get there. We just need to keep the performances up, get as many points on the board and who know where that will take us?”
Madden - a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy winner with Carlisle - will miss next Tuesday’s trip to Orient for the area semi-final, having played in an earlier round for his former club. However, he said he will still be supporting from the stands.
“I will be up at Leyton Orient, cheering on the boys,” he said. “We are all a team and in it together. I will be buzzing for the lads and I am sure they will get a result.
“I have been to a couple of games where I haven’t been able to play. The gaffer wants us as a group and together. It is a great opportunity for the lads to get to Wembley.”
