A left-sided attacking midfielder, Paul McElroy rose through the academy set-up at Hull City after arriving from Dungannon Swifts in 2010 and signed his first professional contract in May 2013. He has been a regular through the Northern Ireland age-group set-up, graduating to the Under-21 side in 2013. As a teenager he was also an accomplished Gaelic footballer with "The Clarkes" in his native Dungannon.
McElroy was released by Hull at the end of the 2013/14 season. He signed for Sheffield Wednesday, but stayed just a month before leaving for personal reasons. He then joined Linfield after a successful trial, but left mid-season for Portadown. He was on the move again at that summer, returning to Dungannon Swifts.
