Staff Biography

Markus Paatelainen (Midfield, 2005-07) - Markus Paatelainen was the younger brother of manager Mixu. Markus had a tremendous season and a half with the Blue Brazil after signing from Aberdeen in September. His brother Mikko Paatelainen also played alongside him at Cowdenbeath for part of the season. Despite suffering a horrific injury at Elgin in March 2006 he returned to the side in time to help clinch the championship as well as picking up the SPFA Player of the Year for the Third Division as well as a host of awards at the Supporters Club presentation night. Markus had spent the previous season with the Dons after signing from FC KooTeePee, following a previous spell with AC Alianssi, but broke an ankle and spent six months on the side lines before being released by the Pittodrie side. Markus then played in the top flight with Inverness Caledonian Thistle but injury hampered him there. Returning home to play in Finland, yet again injury struck and ended his career.
