Date of birth
Born and raised in Litherland, Paul Mullin began his illustrious career in the Liverpool Academy, before making his move to Huddersfield Town.
He was signed to the Huddersfield Town squad in 2012 after impressing at their u18 and u21 youth levels, resulting in a move to Morecambe in 2014.
Mullin made his first professional appearance on the 12th August 2014, after coming on as a sub in the first round of the League Cup, albeit losing 1-0 to Bradford City. Just days later, Mullin scored his first professional goal and it was the winner in a thriller, as Morecambe edged past Newport in a 3-2 victory.
After his inspiring super-sub performance, Mullin had earned his first start in professional football. The talisman scored twice in a 2-1 victory over his future club Cambridge United. Mullin had a knack of taking his opportunities when presented to him and this earned him a three year contract at Morecambe.
He went on to play for Morecambe until 2017, where he scored 25 goals in 122 appearances to stop the Shrimps from slipping out of the football league. His next venture would see him travel down the M62 to Swindon Town for the 2017/18 season, where he netted six times in 40 games in League 2.
Mullin then did a U-turn and made his move back up north to Tranmere for the 2018/19 season, where he hoped to find the nitrogen to give his next season a real kick-start. Although finding promotion through the play-offs, Mullin only booked his name on the scoresheet six times that season, before adding a further five the next season for Tranmere.
Cambridge United were next to scoop in for the Liverpudlian, as they signed him in the January transfer window on a loan, where he scored two goals on his return to League 2 before the pandemic hit the nation. Although only playing six games, Mullin seemed a good fit for United and would later make his loan spell at the Silicon Fen permanent for the upcoming season.
The following season of 2020/21 saw practically every football match played behind closed doors. Without the influence of the fans as a 12th man, some players' performances can suffer, but for Mullin it was a life-changing season. He was voted as the League 2 player of the season with Cambridge, as his emphatic 32 goals in the league campaign saw The U's finish second and achieve promotion to League 1.
The news broke on the 23rd July 2021 that Mullin would join Wrexham's new enticing journey in a bid to rise up the football league system. The striker signed on a three year deal for an undisclosed fee, leaving every Wrexham fan itching to see the League 2 player of the season in action.
