Lowestoft-born Paul Haylock came through the ranks at Norwich City and established himself as first team regular after breaking into the side in 1981.

He made his debut in a 0-0 draw at home against Bolton Wanderers and went on to secure a regular first team berth in the second half of that season as City secured promotion.

Haylock was an ever present the following season in Division One as the Canaries secured a 14th-placed finish in their first season back in the top flight. He only missed a handful of games the following season and was part of the side that won the League Cup against Sunderland at Wembley in 1985. However, the following season saw the emergence of Ian Culverhouse, who displaced Haylock at full back. Haylock went on to join Gillingham in 1986 and enjoyed five years at Priestfield.
