Paul was another of the intrepid squad that took to the muddy fields of Middlesbrough during EuroNET ’97, WIFC’s first venture to the tournament that became WorldNET. Left-footed Paul starred for the side for the first five years of it’s existence and remains one of the best defenders to appear in the colours of the Internet ‘Orns. Family commitments meant Paul left the playing squad, but he received due recognition at the Testimonial dinner in 2007 when he was inducted into the WIFC Hall of Fame. Paul threatened a comeback for a few years, and finally re-appeared at the WorldNET Vets in 2012 and added a first IFA league appearance in 10 years at Peterborough in 2013.
