Early life and career
Powell was born in Hendon, Middlesex, and played primarily as a winger. He joined Charlton Athletic from non-league club Barnet in 1973 after making his debut with Stevenage Town at the age of 17, and went on to make over 300 appearances for the "Addicks". He also spent the 1978 season with New England Tea Men in the North American Soccer League. In 1981, he moved to Gillingham, where he played for two seasons before returning to non-league football with another Kent-based club, Dartford. Always affectionately known as "Paddy".
Powell managed Margate from March 1990 to October 1990, having previously been assistant to manager Trevor Ford. In 1992, he became the head groundsman at Charlton's stadium, The Valley, a post he held until June 2014.
