Paul Kitson (31 May 1956 – 25 August 2005) was an English footballer who played and coached professionally with both indoor and outdoor soccer teams in Canada and the United States.
Kitson began his career with Watford in England before moving to the United States.
On March 6, 1987, Los Angeles Lazers traded Kitson to the Cleveland Force for Chris Chueden. He spent the next two seasons with the Force. In 1990, he played for the New Jersey Eagles in the American Professional Soccer League.
Kitson began his coaching career with the Montreal Impact in 1997, but the team closed at the end of the 1998 season. On May 14, 1999, the Maryland Mania of the USL A-League hired Kitson. In 2001, Kitson was appointed the head coach for Canadian Professional Soccer Leagueexpansion side the Brampton Hitmen. Throughout the season the Hitmen performed poorly without recording a single victory, which resulted in Kitson to be dismissed from his post on July 25, 2001.
