Paul Green born April 10, 1983

Paul started in Sheffield Wednesday’s Academy but following his release he joined Rovers as they looked to rebuild their youth programme following relegation from the Football League in 1998.

A dynamic box-to-box midfielder with an excellent eye for goal, he established himself in the first team during the 2002-03 campaign and scored one of the goals as Rovers beat Dagenham & Redbridge to earn a return to the League.

He was a member of the teams that won the Division Three Championship in 2003-04 and reached the quarter-finals of the League Cup in 2005-06.

In 2006-07 he helped Rovers win the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and the following season he played in the League One play-off Final at Wembley.

Rovers beat Leeds United 1-0 to return to the second tier of English football after an absence of 50 years.

That was to be his final game for Rovers, as he moved on to Derby County. He has won 22 caps for the Republic of Ireland and is still playing in the League with Crewe Alexandra. He made a total of 279 appearances for Rovers, scoring 35 goals.
