In Paul’s eight seasons with the club, Brighton & Hove Albion has reached three play-off semi-finals, finished 3rd in the EFL Championship in 2015/16, and secured automatic promotion to the Premier League in the 2016/17 season. Since then, the club has gone on to enjoy three successive seasons playing at the top level of English football for the first time in almost 40 years.
