Paul enters his ninth season at Leamington having guided the club back to the National League North courtesy of a dramatic extra time victory over Hitchin Town in the Southern League Premier Division play off final in May. He then celebrated his 400th competitive game in charge by watching his team bring home the Birmingham Senior Cup for the first time in 45 years as they beat a young Wolverhampton Wanderers side on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Molineux.

He has managed Brakes since November 2009, taking the team to a play off spot in his first full season, and after winning the Southern League Premier Division Championship in 2013 he managed at Step Two in the Conference North for the first time, achieving a respectable 13th position.

Having begun his playing career as a scholar at Birmingham City, also playing for the Republic of Ireland as a schoolboy, Paul moved into non league with the likes of Alvechurch and Solihull Borough before two knee operations brought early retirement and a move into coaching, where he is qualified to UEFA level. He was instrumental in setting up reserve and youth teams at Solihull Borough before taking his first managerial role at Kings Norton Town, taking them to runners up spot in the Midland Alliance and a cup win before he worked alongside David Busst with the first team at Solihull Borough, eventually taking over the manager’s role. He can lay claim to helping two clubs to promotion in the same season, as he left Solihull for Halesowen Town late in the 2003/2004 campaign, which saw both clubs go up! The Yeltz won the Worcestershire Senior Cup and reached the 1st round proper of the FA Cup under Holleran’s stewardship.

Paul has also managed Rushall Olympic, taking them to two play off spots and the 4th Qualifying Round of FA Cup for the first time in their history.
