One of the longest serving members of Liverpool's backroom staff, Paul arrived from Widnes Rugby Union Club as a part-time masseur in 2002.
He has since gone on to establish himself as an important full-time member of the medical staff and works with both first and reserve team players before and after training sessions as well as participating in the daily medical planning meetings.
"My job involves using massage therapy to help get players ready before the session begins and again at the end of each day's training to help with the recovery," he says.
"I also travel with the first team to some away fixtures and oversee preparation for the players' fluid intake.
"It's a great job because as a kid I wanted to be involved in football and after working as an engineer for 20 years I wanted a change. So I went to college and eventually got offered a role with Widnes.
"After that I sent off my CV and was lucky enough to get a part-time role here and this is where I've been since."
Paul's work with Liverpool saw him named as the England U21 team masseur, a post he held until February 2008, when he left to take up a similar role with the senior squad.
He considers the 2005 Champions League triumph as the highlight of his time at Melwood.
