Paul Went: 1949-2017

Thursday 5 January 2017 13:00

Everyone at Fulham was saddened to learn of the passing of former player Paul Went on Wednesday night.

The centre-back (pictured alongside Tommy Trinder and Alan Mullery) scored on his debut for the Whites in a 1-1 draw with Burnley at Craven Cottage in August 1972.

He was only at the Club for 18 months but was a virtual ever-present in that time, making 67 appearances and scoring five goals.

Went’s career prior to Fulham was also spent in London as he represented Leyton Orient and Charlton Athletic, while he later went on to play for Portsmouth, Cardiff City, and Orient again.

The thoughts of everyone at the Club are with Paul’s family and friends at this sad time.
