ONE TO WATCH

 

Paul Mullin

 

Born in Merseyside, Mullin started his career in Liverpool FC’s academy before moving to Huddersfield Town at the age of 18, before moving onto Morecambe FC in 2014 on a permanent deal.

 

The striker then spent three years in the North-West of England, scoring 28 goals in 140 appearances. Spells at Swindon Town and Tranmere Rovers soon followed before joining Cambridge United in 2020.

 

Mullin initially joined the U’s on loan but impressed during this time to earn himself a permanent contract, which proved to be an important decision for Cambridge United. The now 26-year-old netted 32 goals in 46 league games last season which helped the Club to secure promotion into League One and earn himself a place in the EFL League Two Team of the Season.

 

After declining a new contract from Cambridge, Mullin joined Wrexham AFC this summer and has started swiftly. He is the Red Dragons’ top scorer and will look to provide a threat to the Bees’ defence this Saturday, should he play.
