Paul Anthony Harrison (born 18 December 1984 in Liverpool) is an English footballer who plays as a goalkeeper. He is currently with Welsh side The New Saints.

He attended Liverpool's youth academy but never made a first team appearance despite appearing on the bench on several occasions. He was loaned to Leeds midway through the 2004-05 season as part of the Scott Carson transfer who went in the opposite direction, however Harrison did not make a first team appearance. He was released by Liverpool at the end of that season and had a short spell at Wolves before signing for Chester City (where he had been on trial a few months earlier). In a three month spell he made four consecutive appearances in the league in March 2006, the highlight being saving a penalty in a local derby with Wrexham. But Harrison was dropped to the bench when regular goalkeeper Chris MacKenzie returned to fitness and he did not play again.

He joined Hereford United on non-contract terms as goalkeeping cover, and came on as a substitute against Stockport. Soon after, he left Edgar Street after the Bulls signed another goalkeeper.

He had found himself at Southport as understudy to Ryan Robinson, following the departure of long-serving Steve Dickinson. Since loanee Robinson returned to Morecambe, and moved on to Forest Green Rovers, Harrison became the first team 'keeper at "The Port". However, he was released by the club in May 2007.

He joined The New Saints in 2007 after regular TNS keeper Gerard Doherty was injured ahead of their Champions League match against FK Ventspils.

Paul comes from a family of devoted Liverpool supporters. His father Gary and uncle Steven died in the Hillsborough disaster when Paul was 4 years old and his older sister Claire was 8. On May 14, 2009, Paul played for the Liverpool Legends in the Hillsborough Memorial Match at Anfield.
