The proud owner of two England C caps, ‘Clayts’ joined the Reds on New Year's Eve in 2007 from Blue Square Conference North side Gainsborough Trinity and is now renowned for his strong front running and finishing as well as his heading ability.
The Rotherham-based target man began his career at the Barnsley FC Academy where he spent four years. Following release by the Tykes, Paul moved to Northern Counties East League outfit Parkgate before moving to Gainsborough Trinity.
A hard working target man who is good in the air especially but he also has very good control for a big man.
