Paul Showler (born 10 October 1966) is an English retired football player. He began as a trainee at Sheffield Wednesday but after failing to get a professional contract he juggled a job as a police officer with non-league football. He returned to league football with Barnet, where he became a firm favourite down the left wing becoming known for his goalscoring corner kicks. He later moved to Bradford City and Luton Town, before retiring in 1999.

He graduated from the University of Salford in 1999 with a degree in Physiotherapy [1] and became a physiotherapist at Peterborough United.
