24-year old Paul agreed a long-term contract with the U’s midway through the January 2017 transfer window.
An attack-minded central midfielder, he progressed through the youth ranks at Macclesfield, making his debut in August 2013. Paul excelled at National League level, appearing 108 times for the Moss Rose club and scoring 17 goals, including a hatrick in his final game against Tranmere. He signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the U’s, keeping him at the Abbey Stadium until June 2020. Paul has now played in over 50 games for United and, last season, netted four goals. Also adept in a defensive central role, he spent a month on loan at National League side Dover Athletic during the 2017/18 campaign, but is now a first team regular at the Abbey Stadium.
