Paul George Sheerin (born 28 August 1974 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish professional footballer, currently playing for Scottish Premier League side St. Johnstone, the sixth professional club of his career.


Sheerin signed as a professional for Alloa from junior side Whitehill Welfare, although he had been on the books of Celtic as a schoolboy. He then signed for Southampton in October 1992 and while at The Dell he played under several managers including Ian Branfoot, Alan Ball and Graeme Souness. However he failed to break through and left in December 1997 without having made a first team appearance.

During his time at Southampton he earned international recognition after playing for Scotland Under-21 in a 1-0 win over San Marino in November 1995.

After a summer playing in Sweden with Östersunds FK he had a brief period back at his former club Alloa before joining Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January 1998. His stint at Caley Thistle lasted to the end of the 2000-01 season, in which period he made 136 appearances, scoring 45 goals. He then had spells at Ayr United and Aberdeen before joining St. Johnstone on the eve of the 2004-05 season on a free transfer, signing a two-year contract.

On 15 November 2006, Sheerin was awarded the Scottish Football League "Player of the Month" award for October. In May 2008, Sheerin had his contract extended with St. Johnstone by another year. Sheerin recently scored what is regarded as his greatest ever goal,and one of the greatest ever scored at McDiarmid Park in St. Johnstone's 2-0 win over Dundee. Sheerin is known as "The Wizard" to many Saints fans due to the skills he displays which allow him to beat opposing players despite not being what you would call a speedy player and also just the sheer elegance the man displays with the ball at his feet. He also coaches St. Johnstone U17s.[1]
