Paul Green

Women Assistant Manager

Paul Green joined Chelsea in February 2013 after leaving fellow WSL side Doncaster Rovers Belles after seven years, during which the club made the transition from FA Women's Premier League to FA Women's Super League football. In fact Green was instrumental in the bidding process required to secure the Belles FA WSL status in 2010.

During his time with Belles the club finished in the top four twice, reached the 2009 FA League Cup final and developed some of the best young players in the country.

He comes from a very strong football background; his late father, Bill, was an ex-professional player, coach, chief scout and football league manager. Green followed his father into football and signed for Scunthorpe United before moving onto Rotherham United. After leaving the Millers he played in non-league for Buxton, Bradford PA, Belper Town and Stocksbridge PS before being forced to retire after rupturing his cruciate ligaments.

Since retiring he has concentrated on the other side of the game. He is a UEFA 'A' coaching licence holder and has been involved in the men's game, working as a scout for Derby County, Wigan Athletic, Leicester City, Hull City, Scout7 and Southampton where he was asked to compile player/match reports.
