It will be Paul’s seventh consecutive season as a Premier League representative on The FA Council and Professional Game Board (PGB).

He was previously elected to the FA Council and PGB by EFL Championship clubs for the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, and he will therefore soon commence his ninth season in these roles since returning to English football from MLS club Vancouver Whitecaps FC 12 years ago.

Paul said, “I am looking forward to continuing to serve on The FA Council and Professional Game Board in a role I greatly enjoy, not only representing the clubs in our division, but the wider interests of football in our country as well.”

In April, Paul signed a new contract with Albion until 2030.
