From Tain, Paul has played in the North Caledonian League since the age of fifteen, and is one of only two players to have played for St Duthus either side of the club's revival. Having also played for Balintore, he has earned a reputation over the past 15 years as a hard tackling midfield man who shows tremendous bravery on the park. Also an able defender (and even a goalkeeper on occasion), Paul can turn his hand to many positions on the park.
Knee injuries have restricted Paul's involvement in recent times, although he remains a member of the first team squad. At the start of the 2017-18 season, Paul took up a player-coach role at the club.
