Career

Stoke City

Paterson made his debut for Stoke as a late substitute for Chris Greenacre in the 2–0 win over Plymouth Argyle on 16 April 2005 His first start came in March 2006 against Leeds United and he hit his first goal six months later, against Sheffield Wednesday.[3] He made a total of 12 league appearances (two starts) before moving to Grimsby on loan in November 2006, initially for a month.

On loan at Grimsby in League Two, he scored on his club debut — 25 November 2006 against Accrington Stanley. Grimsby extended his loan stay for an extra two months. In February 2007, Paterson returned to parent club Stoke City after serving the maximum stay at Grimsby.

Scunthorpe United

In the summer of 2007, Paterson was signed by Scunthorpe United manager Nigel Adkins as a replacement for the departed Billy Sharp.[4]

He scored on his full début for Scunthorpe, putting the side 1–0 up before they lost 2–1 to League One side Hartlepool United in the League Cup.

On 2 November 2007, Paterson's record of seven goals in 11 starts saw him get a first call-up to the senior Northern Ireland squad for the matches against Denmark and Spain.[5]

On 29 January 2008, Norwich had a £850,000 bid for Paterson rejected by Scunthorpe.

In May 2008, Burnley had an offer of £400,000 rejected, which was then increased on 27 May 2008 to £550,000. This offer was also rejected on the same day. Paterson had a written transfer request rejected, and said the club had gone back on their word.[6]

On 21 June 2008, it was revealed by Scunthorpe United that they had accepted a £1 million bid from Burnley, which would rise to £1.3 million depending on appearances. The deal included add ons and a 20% sell on fee.

Burnley

On 23 June 2008 Paterson signed a four year contract with Burnley. In his first season with the Clarets, he was the top scorer, scoring 19 goals in all competitions, helping the side to a League Cup semi-final and promotion to the Premier League after a play-off win over Sheffield United at Wembley Stadium.

On 22 September, in a League Cup game against Barnsley, Paterson tore his medial knee ligament and therefore missed three months of the season. This injury came just days after Burnley midfielder Chris McCann tore a similar ligament.

Paterson scored his first Premier League goal on 21 February 2010 against Aston Villa in a 5–2 loss.. he scored in burnley 4-2 win over spurs on the final day of the 2009-10 season .

On 4 June 2010 Paterson signed a new 3 year contract at Burnley. Paterson was again hit by injuries and could only make 11 appearances.
