Mullin was born in Litherland, Merseyside, a supporter of Everton.[2] He spent time in the academies of both Everton and Liverpool and after a period in the Liverpool Foundation Football College, he moved to Huddersfield Town.[5][6]

Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield Town's youth coach Frankie Bunn invited Mullin to the squad. Subsequently Mullin was signed to Huddersfield Town in 2012[6] after impressing at U18 and U21 level; he signed a one-year contract at the club.[7] However, at the end of the 2013–14 season, Mullin was released by the club, without ever making a first team appearance.[8]


After a successful trial period he signed for Morecambe on a short term contract in August 2014.[9][10] He made his professional debut coming on as a second-half substitute in the League Cup first round defeat to Bradford City on 12 August 2014.[11] Four days later, on his league debut, Mullin scored his first professional goal after coming on as a second-half substitute in the 3–2 win over Newport County, which he scored a winning goal.[12] One week later, on 23 August, Mullin made his full debut scoring both goals in a 2–1 win away at Cambridge United.[13] After scoring three goals in the first seven matches, Mullin signed a three-year contract with the club in mid-September.[14] Then on 31 October 2014, Mullin would end his eleven games without scoring despite losing 2–1 to Accrington Stanley.[15]

Swindon Town

On 27 June 2017, Mullin joined League two club Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee. Mullin was well regarded by fans for his hard-working approach but goals were hard to come by; which led to his departure after only one season.[16]

Tranmere Rovers

In June 2018, he signed for Tranmere Rovers.[17] He scored his first goal for Tranmere in a 4–3 EFL Trophy loss against Crewe Alexandra on 4 September 2018.[18]

In January 2020, Tranmere Rovers took Premier League club Watford to an FA Cup third round replay after drawing 3–3 at Vicarage Road, Mullin scored a penalty in the first game and went on to score the winner after coming on as a substitute in the replay at Prenton Park. Tranmere drew Manchester United in the fourth round at home.

Cambridge United

Mullin signed for Cambridge United on a six-month loan deal on 31 January 2020,[19] and scored his first goal for the club on 11 February 2020, away at Scunthorpe United. He scored again at Leyton Orient on 7 March, the last match before the season was curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In July 2020, Mullin signed permanently on a one-year contract.[20] On 20 October 2020, he scored a hat-trick in a 3–1 victory over Port Vale, taking his goal total to 11 in ten matches in all competitions.[21] On 27 March 2021, Mullin scored his 25th league goal of the season in a 2–1 victory over Carlisle United,[22] a goal which saw him break David Crown's record for the most league goals by a Cambridge United player in a season. As a gesture, club partners Mead renamed their stand the "Paul Mullin Stand", a name that would stay in place for the remainder of the 2020–21 season.[23]

In April 2021, Mullin was nominated for the EFL League Two Player of the Season,[24] before being announced as the winner at the EFL Awards on 29 April,[25] where he was also named in the 2020–21 EFL League Two Team of the Season.[26] Mullin was also awarded the League Two Golden boot after scoring 32 goals in Cambridge United's 2020–21 campaign, in which they secured promotion to the third tier of English football,[27] a record number for the division since its rebranding in 2004.[28]


At the end of the 2020–21 season Mullin rejected a new contract offer with Cambridge United[29] and in July 2021 joined National League side Wrexham on a three-year deal.[30] After scoring three goals across the course of the month, including a vital winner against FC Halifax Town, Mullin was awarded the league's Player of the Month award for November 2021.[31] Mullin continued to have a successful first season at Wrexham, winning Wrexham Men's Team Top Goalscorer, Player of the Season, and Goal of the Season awards[32] as well as the National League's Golden Boot and Player of the Season.[33]

In October 2022, Mullin posted a picture of his boots on which was written a political message involving the Conservative Party. The club acted quickly to ban him from wearing the boots, calling the photo an "unwelcome distraction".[34] Later that season, he wore another message on his boots, carrying a dedication to his son Albi who had recently been diagnosed with autism.[35]
