Having spent the summer months with Swedish club OFK Ostersund, Paul returned to join Exeter City last November and went straight into the first team. He was one of the first-choice strikers for the Grecians until he fractured his pelvis in an innocuous looking collision during the game with Macclesfield in February. He returned to first team action by the end of the season but managed just one goal for the Devon club. Paul was placed on Exeter's transfer list in August 2001 and was released at the end of the season.
