Paul Anthony Hall (born 3 July 1972 in Nottinghammarker, Englandmarker), is an Englishmarker born Jamaicanmarker international footballer who plays for Stratford Townmarker. He is a striker who can also play on the right wing.


Hall began his career as an apprentice at Torquay United, turning professional on 9 July 1990, although he had already made his league debut the previous season. He helped the Gulls to promotion via the play-offs, primarily playing as a winger, and made a total of 93 league appearances, before a £70,000 transfer to Portsmouth on 25 March 1993.

Hall was to spend five happy seasons with the Fratton Parkmarker outfit, and after some impressive displays Hall gained a call up to the Jamaica national football team to participate at the 1998 FIFA World Cup.

After some impressive performances at the 1998 FIFA World Cup Hall moved to Coventry City for a fee of £300,000. Within four months at Coventry he had been told by manager Gordon Strachan that he did not fit into his plans, but Hall chose to stay and fight for a place, turning down a move to Port Vale in late November 1998. On 18 February 1999 he joined Bury on loan, but again returned to Highfield Roadmarker to fight for a first team place. The following season chances were even sparser, with loan moves to Sheffield United on 17 December 1999, and to West Bromwich Albion on 10 February 2000, neither of which resulted in permanent deals.

Finally, on 17 March 2000, Hall left Highfield Road, joining Walsall on loan until the end of the season, and in the summer joined the Saddlers permanently on a free transfer. He helped the club to gain promotion to Division One (now known as The Championship) via the play offs, but found himself out of manager Ray Graydon's plans for the 2001–02 campaign. Port Vale attempted to take him loan on 20 September, but were told by Walsall that only a permanent deal would suffice. The following week he was offered a trial at Queens Park Rangers, but again returned to Walsall. On 10 October 2001, he finally left the Bescot Stadium, joining league newcomers Rushden & Diamonds on a free transfer, playing alongside fellow former Torquay forwards Scott Partridge and Duane Darby.Hall spent three seasons with Rushden & Diamonds making 112 appearances and scoring 26 goals. In the then Division Three play-off final, Hall scored a superb solo goal straight from kickoff after Cheltenham scored. When financial problems forced Rushden to offload several players, he signed for Tranmere Rovers where he played 55 times and scored 13 goals.

For the 2005–06 season Hall signed on a free for Chesterfield, for whom he was the top scorer with 15 goals in 47 league and cup starts. On 4 June 2007, Paul Hall returned to his former club Walsall.

On 11 January 2008, Hall and fellow Saddlers team mate, Danny Sonner both joined League Two strugglers Wrexham, however Hall's deal was only a loan deal. Hall scored his first goal for Wrexham on 9 March which was the opening goal in a 2-0 win at local rivals Chester City. Unfortunately for Hall he suffered an injury, and returned to Walsall. In July 2008, Hall signed for Conference South club Newport County under manager Dean Holdsworth.. Hall's contract with Newport was cancelled in October 2008 by mutual consent. He joined Stratford Townmarker of the Midland Football Alliance in November 2008.

Recently, he and Duane Darbyare looking to join forces and apply for the vacant managers position at their former club Rushden & Diamonds following the resignation of Garry Hill.
