Paul has a vast amount of experience in the game and has several promotions on his CV. His ambition and long-term goals mirror that of the Club's ongoing strategy, to build a Bristol Rovers DNA. His track record of developing younger players is impressive and we believe he's the ideal person to maximise the full potential that the playing squad possesses.
