Paul Michael Green (born 15 April 1987) is an English footballer who currently plays for Conference North side Tamworth, where he plays as a defender or midfielder.

Playing career[edit]

Aston Villa[edit]

Born in Birmingham, Green started his career as a professional at Aston Villa progressing from the youth ranks. He made it into the Villa squad for pre-season friendlies in the summer of 2006, but was soon released on a free transfer.

Lincoln City[edit]

Paul Green was signed by John Schofield for Lincoln City on 22 January 2007 on the same day as Dany N'Guessan.[2] Green scored his first goal for Imps in the 2006/7 season in a 1–1 draw with Hartlepool United. He enjoyed impressive displays during the 2007/8 season, winning the Lincoln City Player of the Year, Players Player and Website Player of the Year awards. He scored his second Lincoln goal in a 2–1 victory at Morecambe towards the end of the season.

Following The Imps relegation to the Conference National, Green was linked with a move back into league football with Oxford United.[3] However, a few days later Green was not offered a new contract with Lincoln City and released.[4]

Tamworth[edit]

Following his release from The Imps, Green signed for Tamworth following a successful trial.[5] Green made his debut in the season opener away at Barrow.[6]

Forest Green Rovers[edit]

On 6 July 2012, Green joined Forest Green Rovers.[7] After suffering an injury in pre-season that kept him out of action for the first two months of the campaign, Green made his Forest Green debut on 9 October 2012 in a home loss against former club Tamworth.[8] He went on to claim three-man-of-the-match awards in his first six games.

Following his return from loan with Hereford United, Green netted his first goal for Forest Green Rovers against his former club Lincoln City on 16 November 2013 in a 4–1 win.[9] On 28 April 2014, it was announced that he had been released by the club along with nine other players.[10]

Hereford United (loan)[edit]

On 29 August 2013, he joined league rivals Hereford United on a one-month loan.[11] He made his Hereford debut two days later in a 2–1 win over Welling United.[12] After making seven league appearances, his month-long spell with Hereford ended and he returned to Forest Green.

Tamworth[edit]

It was announced on July 8, 2014, that Paul Green had returned to his former club Tamworth of the Conference North.[13]
