Brett Morrissey - Such a sad way for a career to come to a close

Malcolm Hornburg - No surprise there. Been talk for a very long time. I'd say a few of his mates with be a bit sweaty today as well

Brett Goodlet - "This is a very sad day for Ipswich. Paul was great for this city." 

Katherine Williamson - "Get well Paul. You are a great ambassador and leader of our great city of Ipswich. Thoughts are with his family."
