After a playing career which took in spells with the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Carlisle United and Yeovil Town as well as four years in the USA, Paul Nevin began his coaching journey with Fulham’s Academy.
Nevin spent eight years working with a variety of the junior and reserve teams at Craven Cottage, before heading to manage the New Zealand Knights in the Australian A-League for a season and then on to Qatar, where Nevin held a role at the Aspire Academy working with the Middle East nation’s young players and coaches.
Returning to England in 2013, he took a coaching role at Norwich City, where he first worked alongside manager and former West Ham and Republic of Ireland defender Chris Hughton, before joining the Premier League as head of coaching.
After two years in that role, Nevin was reunited with Hughton at Brighton & Hove Albion, where he took the role of first-team coach. Under their guidance, the Seagulls won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in 2016/17, before establishing themselves in the top flight.
In November 2018, as part of a Football Association initiative to solve the under-representation of BAME coaches in the game, he was invited to join England’s coaching staff by manager Gareth Southgate, working with Declan Rice and the Three Lions as they reached the finals of the UEFA Nations League.
