Bio Extra

Twaddle, a left back, was previously a youth player at Rangers but failed to make any first team appearances and joined Falkirk in August 2003. The highlight of his Falkirk career was scoring the winner against Rangers – Falkirk's first league win against Rangers in over three decades. He left Falkirk in summer 2007 in search of first team football and joined Partick Thistle. He was much appreciated by the Thistle support due to his exceptionally high work rate, good pace and cultured left foot. He usually played as a left back, although he could be deployed either as a wing back in a five-man defence or as a left-sided midfielder. He rejoined Falkirk in July 2009 under the former youth team coach, Eddie May. On 4 July 2011, Twaddle signed for Rochdale on a two-year contract. On 2 July 2012, his contract was cancelled by mutual consent. In August 2012, he moved to Ayr United after signing a contract. Twaddle signed for Junior side Irvine Meadow in August 2013. He left the club, and football, early in 2016, work commitments being cited as the reason.
