Paul Anthony Rogers (born 21 March 1965 in Portsmouth) is an English retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

He started his career at non-league club Sutton United,[1] and was part of the team that defeated Coventry City in the third round of the 1988-89 FA Cup.

In January 1992, he joined Sheffield United, who were in the First Division at the time, for a fee of £35,000. He made over 120 league appearances for the club before moving to Notts County in 1995. However, he soon moved again to Wigan Athletic in 1997 following a successful loan spell. He made 100 league appearances for the club, and scored the winning goal for Wigan in the final of the Associate Members' Cup in 1999.

Rogers went on play at Brighton for four years before announcing his retirement from professional football in 2003.[2] He joined Isthmian League side Worthing as a player-coach, where he stayed until finally bringing an end to his playing career in 2008.[3]

In 2009, he joined Burgess Hill Town as a club coach.[4]

He is currently Brighton's head of commercial services.[5]
