Experience:

Paul started his career at Torquay United and was quickly sought after by many higher league clubs. In 1993 and after nearly 100 appearances for Torquay he was sold to Portsmouth for £100,000. Paul went on and made 188 appearances for Portsmouth scoring 37 times but in the year of 1998 was sold to Coventry City for £300,000. Paul is an extremely experienced footballer and throughout his ten year career he has represented over 8 different clubs, making over 650 appearances, and scoring over 100 goals.

Paul is an English born player who chose to represent Jamaica in international football. He, along with former team mate Fitzroy Simpson came to Jamaica in the summer of 1997, in order to trial for the Jamaican national team, a move that proved to be a success. He went on, as did Fitzroy and represented Jamaica at the World Cup finals in France 98.

In the year of 98 Her Majesty the Queen honoured Paul and other selected team mates of Jamaica. This reward was granted at Buckingham Palace for service and efforts paid to the Jamaican nation team.

Paul retired in 2008 where he then gained further coaching qualifications. Initially returning to Coventry City, a highly rated academy he gained further experience being a member of their coaching setup. Progressing further and feeling the need to improve Paul moved to Mansfield Town where he was made Youth Team Manager.
