Culpin, P (Paul)

Paul in the Sky Blue

The Association would like to wish our member and former Sky Blue striker Paul Culpin a ‘Very Happy 55th Birthday’ for Today!! Born in Kirby Muxloe, Leicestershire on 8th February 1962 Paul still comes to a fair few Sky Blues home games at the Ricoh.

Initially an apprentice with Leicester City and also an England semi-professional international, ‘Cully’ signed for CCFC from local non-league side Nuneaton Borough (where he had been a prolific scorer) in summer 1985. Paul netted twice in twelve first team appearances for the Sky Blues. Though he didn’t play at Wembley (being cover for fellow CCFPA members Keith Houchen and Cyrille Regis) one of the highlights of his career was being part of that squad and walking on to the hallowed turf with the Cup Final team to the acclaim of the Sky Blue hordes.  Paul moved on to Northampton Town in 1987 where he was a regular scorer over two seasons. After spells with Peterborough United, Barnet, Hereford United and Christchurch United (New Zealand), Paul returned to his non league roots with Nuneaton and still lives locally’.

‘Cully’, we hope you have a great day today!!
