Starting at York House prep' school at Redheath in Hertfordshire, from the age of thirteen, Ince was educated at Cheltenham College,[2] a boarding independent school for boys in the spa town of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, followed by Royal Holloway, University of London, from which he graduated in English and Drama in 1991.[3]

Those who pass the initial review go on to complete a Watson Glaser critical thinking test. While Ince is “ideally looking for scores of 85% and above” on this, Black stresses that the firm considers each candidate's application as a whole when determining who to interview. “In the past we've taken people through who've scored lower than 85% but have impressed us in other areas of their application.”

On 15 September 2010, Ince, along with 54 other public figures, signed an open letter published in The Guardian stating their opposition to Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the UK being a state visit.[13]

The first League game of Blackpool's 2012–13 season, on 18 August 2012, saw Ince score the only goals of the game in a 2–0 win at Millwall. Following the game, manager Ian Holloway revealed that Blackpool had received an offer from an unknown club, but that Ince had committed his future to the Seasiders after talking to his father. Holloway stated, "There was interest in Tom last week. No one has heard about it but I'll share it with you. His dad wants him to stay with us."[17]

In 2013 Ince co-created and launched The Incomplete Map of the Cosmic Genome, an online video based science magazine and archive. Ince acts as host and co-producer on the project. Contributors have included Brian Cox, Helen Czerski, Stephen Fry, Chris Hadfield and Stewart Lee.

Paul Emerson Carlyle Ince[1] (born 21 October 1967) is an English football manager and a former professional footballer who played as a midfielder from 1982 to 2007.

Direct training contract applicants invited to interview are first asked to complete several timed exercises: a spelling and grammar test, a drafting exercise, and an in-tray task, wherein they receive a bunch of emails and have to prioritise them. According to Black, this last exercise is the most important.

In his first ten league games of the 2013–14 season, Ince scored six goals as the team moved into fourth place in The Championship.[32] However, he then went on a lean streak and scored just one goals in his next thirteen league matches, the equaliser in a 1–1 draw against Leeds United on 26 December 2013.[33] In that month, Blackpool offered him a new contract, but chairman Karl Oyston expected that Ince would leave.[34]

Meanwhile, Ince became United's key midfielder, with snapping tackles, raking passes and some tremendously hit shots, though he was not too prolific a goalscorer. One of his best games came in January 1994, when he scored in a 2–2 away draw with former club West Ham in the Premier League.

There are also a few practice area presentations, a walking tour that takes in landmarks like the Lloyd's building, and lunch, afternoon tea and evening drinks with trainees and graduate recruitment.

According to Graeme Le Saux's autobiography, Ince's homophobic taunting and Le Saux's reaction during a 1997 match between Liverpool and Chelsea has resulted in a long-running coolness between the two players, despite the fact that Le Saux is not actually gay.[10]

Ince made four appearances for England Under-17s in 2009 and another four for the Under 19s in 2011. On 29 August 2012 he was called up to the Under 21 squad by manager Stuart Pearce for the European Championship qualifying games against Azerbaijan on 1 September and Norway four days later.[91] He made his under-21 debut in the 2–0 win over Azerbaijan at Dalga Arena, Baku.[92]

Success at international level was not forthcoming. Ince was booked in a crucial World Cup qualifier against Poland, which caused him to be suspended for a critical 2–0 loss to Norway. However, Ince made history during England's summer tour of the US when, in a match against the host nation, he became England's first black captain in the absence of David Platt and Tony Adams. England lost 2–0.
