Date of birth
A former youth with Barnsley, Paul made 25 appearances for the Championship club before switching to Ipswich Town in 2016 following a successful loan spell.
An imposing and combative central midfielder standing at 6’4”, he accepted a new challenge when Mansfield came calling in July 2017, then moved on a year later when Forest Green Rovers courted his services. The 25-year old impressed during 37 League Two appearances for Rovers in the 2018/19 season, helping them reach the Play-offs, before joining Stevenage at the end of that campaign midway through his two-year contract at the New Lawn. Also capable of operating in central defence, Paul pulled on an England shirt earlier in his career at U19 and U20 level, memorably scoring for the Three Lions in a win over Hungary. Never needing encouragement to join the attack, Paul departed Stevenage this summer, penning a one-year deal at the Abbey Stadium.
