Having served us on a non-contract basis after leaving Newport,  Paul grew during the latter part of last season and deserved a new deal. His is competent and capable in both a traditional full-back and wing-back role. With support from his midfielder – to avoid 2 on 1 – you feel he will deal with most on the overlap even though he is not blessed with supreme pace.  Offensively he is useful although he must vary his crosses a little more. For one with a good array of passing – 2 to 3 thirty-yarders to feet last season were magnificent – he always seems to go near post with his crosses.  For the money we will get few better, Paul has the desire, determination and technique to have a great season   as long as he gets the support he needs to allow him to get forward to turn defence into attack. However if the side struggles let us hope he does not go back into his shell.
 Good luck Paul,
