Born in 1980, Paul was promoted to the Select Group of Referees in 2016 and officiated his first Premier League on 30 August 2014 between Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion.
Paul originally comes from and resides in Wigan. He is also an avid Athletic supporter.
Primarily officiating in the Championship and various Cup competitions Paul, out of 22 games has brandished a total of 80 yellow and three red cards.
Amazingly, referee Tierney has not taken charge of any game involving Manchester City or Huddersfield Town this season.
Come on CITY!
