INTERVIEW | Paul Mullin on signing his new contract

Mullin shares his thoughts on extending Wrexham stay

3 January 2024

Paul Mullin insisted there’s nowhere else he’d rather be, after extending his stay with the Red Dragons until 2027.

The striker, who made it 90 goals in a Wrexham shirt at the weekend had previously signed a deal until the end of the 2025/26 season but now has added an extra year to his time at the STōK Cae Ras

Mullin, 28, dropped out of the EFL to arrive in North Wales and has reaped the rewards both personally and collectively.

In his first two seasons with the Club he won back-to-back Club player of the season awards, lifted the National League, finished top scorer in the division and the earned the Emirates FA Cup Golden Ball for the 2022/23 season.

On signing his new deal, Mullin described his love for the Club and why Wrexham is the only Club on his mind.

He said: “Since I signed it’s been an unbelievable ride and journey which we’ve [speaking alongside Elliot Lee] both come to absolutely love.

“We love the place; we love everything about and I can only speak for me, and I think it’s the same for Elliot there’s nowhere else I’d rather play football at the moment.

“I love playing here and when the Club came to me with the offer I jumped at the chance and I’m buzzing to move forward.”

The Red Dragons sit third in Sky Bet League Two, but only two points off top spot after defeating Barrow 4-1 on New Year’s Day.

It has been a successful return to the EFL for the Club, with Mullin bagging 11 goals after recovering from the injury he sustained in pre-season.

Alongside the Liverpool-born striker, Elliot Lee also extended his stay at the Club with his contract running until the end of the 2026/27.

Both players have proved pivotal to the Club’s success so far, and Mullin added he is looking forward to sharing the journey with him.

He said: “I’m going to be here for a lot longer than I originally signed for, but I hope it’s going to be a successful one.

“We want to keep going and pushing and I’m sure it’s the same for Elliot. It’s a place we both love playing football so it’s a no brainer for us.

“We’ve enjoyed the journey up until now, it’s been about 18 months since Elliot signed and it’s been unbelievable.

“The Club has gone way past where I think anyone thought it would be and we want to be as successful as we can be.”

The exciting journey ahead starts with our upcoming Emirates FA Cup Third Round clash.

Phil Parkinson’s side will be hoping to replicate last season’s success at this stage, when they travel to Shrewsbury Town on Sunday.

Mullin was presented with the Golden Ball at last season’s final, when Manchester City defeated Manchester United at Wembley, having finished as the competition’s top goalscorer.

Whilst his new contract has secured his future, Mullin explained it’s this weekend’s game that is the focus.

He said: “It’s so cliched but now that the contracts are sorted, we’ll concentrate on doing the job each game.

“This season is more important, and we don’t think ahead about next week because we’ve got Shrewsbury in the cup and that’s our mindset.

“We go into that game wanting to do as well as we can, but then it’s back to the league and we have to concentrate each game because if you get to far ahead of yourself you can come back down with a bang.”
