Paris had started his career at Nene Park in the Club’s Development Programme aged 12. After two seasons, he signed for the Diamonds’ Centre of Excellence in September 2005 and represented the Diamonds at Under-18 level, whilst still only 15. He went for unsuccessful trials at Manchester United and Chelsea. When former manager Paul Hart became Youth Team boss at Portsmouth, he signed Paris to their Youth scheme in July 2007 whilst they were still a Premiership club. After time spent with the Portsmouth Youth and reserve sides he went on two loan spells with Grimsby Town in 2010, both of which were cut short due to illness and injury, before being released at the end of last season. In the early part of 2010/2011 season he signed for Championship club Scunthorpe United, initially on trial but was then given a permanent deal in October 2010. He made his league debut for the Irons as a substitute in their Championship game against Watford on 3 January 2011. Paris arrived at Nene Park on a three month loan on 16 February 2011, and scored in his first game against Eastbourne Borough.

At the end of the season, he returned to his parent club, Scunthorpe United with injury and illness having limited him to two starts and one substitute appearance in Conference games. He was released by them in May 2011, and was on trial at League Two side Gillingham during July before signing for Conference South side Woking on 12 August 2011. He helped Woking to the Conference South title, scoring 11 times in 27 appearances. Although he was offered a contract extension, Paris declined this in favour of a move to League Two side Plymouth Argyle which was announced on 29 May 2012, to commence on 1 July after compensation was agreed between the two clubs. He scored 5 times in 45 appearances, but was transferred to fellow League Two side Wycombe Wanderers on 25 June 2013 on a two year deal, for an undisclosed fee. He joined Millwall at the start of 2015 but his appearances there were limited and he return to Wycombe Wanderers in June 2016, initially on loan, but then signing a deal through to 2019.
