Exeter City Football Club prides itself on not standing in the way of staff, players and management when further opportunities arise away from the club.
Given Paul’s excellent track-record at Exeter City, we are always unsurprised to receive approaches from other clubs for his services.
We are also delighted with the mutual loyalty between Paul and the club during his seven-and-a-half years at St James Park.
