Weight81 kg
Height1.78 m
PositionMidfielder

Making his Newcastle debut as a 17 year-old, Paul's exciting displays on the right wing augured well for the future. He continued to impress in 1985-86 and 1986-87 before falling out of favour.

Paul had another excellent season for Hartlepool in 2000-01 when he was a near ever-present. His career seems to have undergone a rejuvenation since he switched from playing as a winger to a central midfield role two seasons ago. He once again linked up well with his colleagues and showed he has the ability to control the speed of the game. Paul was rewarded for his fine performances when manager Chris Turner gave him a new contract.
