Paul Malcolm Adcock (born 2 May 1972) is an English former professional footballer, playing as a forward.

Adcock was born in Ilminster, Somerset. He began his career as an apprentice with Plymouth Argyle, turning professional on 7 August 1990. He made his league debut for the Pilgrims on 18 September 1990 in a 2-2 draw with Oxford United at Home Park.

He failed to establish himself in the Plymouth side, making only 21 league appearances in the following 3 years until his release by manager Peter Shilton in the summer of 1993, when he joined Bath City. On his debut for Bath in August 1993, he scored three goals, with his form in the conference (averaging a goal very other game) leading to a second chance at league football when Torquay United signed him on 16 August 1996.

However, hampered by a foot injury and a loss of confidence, he played only once in the league cup against Bristol City on 28 August, and only once in the league, as a substitute, before being released and returning to non-league football, initially returning to Bath City, before joining Gloucester City, managed by Leroy Rosenior in November 1996. Gloucester underwent many changes during the short period of time Paul was at the club, mainly due to the serious financial difficulties the club was facing. Paul subsequently joined Weymouth, originally on loan on 31 March 1998, and on a Bosman free transfer in the summer of 1998.

He stayed with the Terras until the summer of 2000 when his contract was not renewed. He had spent much of the previous season out with a hernia groin injury, and was unhappy about being released without the chance to prove his fitness. He subsequently joined Saltash United where he played alongside another former Gull, Michael Preston. He subsequently played for Devon non-league side Tavistock, while working as a scaffolder, receiving the Chairman's player of the year award for the 2003-2004 season.
