Paul Conway (born April 17, 1970, in Portland, Oregon) is a retired American soccer forward who spent five seasons in the English lower divisions before returning to the United States. He was the 2001 United Soccer Leagues leading goal scorer and MVP. Conway is currently an announcer on Fox Soccer Channel, covering USL matches.

High school and college

Conway, son of former Portland Timbers midfielder Jimmy Conway, grew up in Portland, Oregon, attending Jesuit High School where he played on the school's soccer team. He then attended Hartwick College. He played on the Hartwick men's soccer team from 1988 to 1991. In 1989, he was a third-team All-American. Conway finished his four season at Hartwick with forty-six career goals.[1]

Professional

In 1989, while still in college, Conway spent the summer playing with F.C. Portland in the Western Soccer Alliance.[2] After college, he played for the Brooklyn Italians in the Cosmopolitan Soccer League. In 1993, Conway signed with Carlisle United of the English Football League. During his four seasons with Carlisle, Conway and his team mates bounced between the second and third divisions. In 1997, Conway moved to Northampton Town on a free transfer. He failed to settle into the first team and was sent on loan to Scarborough. In 1998, Conway returned to the United States and signed with Charleston Battery in the second division USL A-League. He spent seven seasons with the Battery. His best year with the team came in 2001 when he led the league in both goals and points, earning both first-team All-Star and MVP honors. On May 20, 2005, the Portland Timbers signed Conway. He played one season, scoring a single goal in thirteen games, and was released at the end of the season.
