Biographical Text

Paul Masefield played just once for Exeter City after signing from Cheltenham Town. He later appeared for Stockport, Doncaster and Preston before settling in Singapore. 

Paul joined Birmingham City as a trainee in 1987 but, after turning professional in July 1989, never appeared in the first-team and moved to non-league Cheltenham Town in July 1991.

After a few months at Whaddon Road Paul joined Exeter City as a non-contract player in February 1992 and made his only appearance in the home defeat to Wigan Athletic on 8 February 1992. 

Leaving the club shortly afterwards, Paul returned to the Midlands to play for Bromsgrove Rovers ahead of another professional opportunity with Stockport County for whom he featured in seven league matches. He subsequently moved to Doncaster Rovers in February 1993 and appeared in nine league games before an August 1993 switch to Preston North End where he played what proved to be the final six games of a 23-match Football League career.

Paul continued in football with a return to Bromsgrove followed by stints at Limerick and at Sing Tao Sports Club in Hong Kong where he was to feature for the local league’s All-Star XI against the likes of Sampdoria, Inter Milan and the Yugoslavian national side.
Moving later to Singapore, Paul turned out for Jurong, Balestier Khalsa and Tanjong Pagar United prior to settling in the country permanently and running a youth coaching school in addition to working as a TV pundit.
