Paul was a ruck rover and centreman who finished his career a much-travelled footballer. A talented player who ran all day, he always used the ball well. He was a fine kick with either foot, a good mark for his size and a fine team man. He originally started his senior career at Box Hill is 1967, before crossing to Eastlake in 1968. He won the 1968 “Mulrooney Medal” for the Best and Fairest in the A.C.T football League. He then crossed to Balmain, in the Sydney League, before being recruited by North Melbourne in 1970. He then spent seven seasons with North and was a fine contributor in their first VFL Premiership win in 1975. He spent 1977 with East Fremantle before crossing to Richmond in 1978. After one season he moved to the VFA, before coaching in Canberra. He later coached the Brisbane Bears in 1989, after Peter Knights was sacked a coach. His influence resulted in a marked on-field improvement for that club. In 1990, he was overlooked for the coaching job. Away from football, Paul holds tertiary qualifications in both Physical education and Psychology. Originally in the Navy, he is also a qualified automotive engineer and has driven formula one racing cars. Paul is a director of a sporting goods company and now lives in Queensland.
