Out with the old, in with new Paul Mullin

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

VETERAN for­mer More­cambe striker Paul Mullin has taken to twit­ter this week to clar­ify that he has not come out of re­tire­ment – and that the new Shrimps strik­ing sen­sa­tion of the same name is young enough to be his son!

Var­i­ous me­dia out­lets have been get­ting the two con­fused since 19-yearold Mullin started bang­ing in the goals at the Globe Arena this term.

The 41-year-old ver­sion, who scored 16 times in 66 games for More­cambe be­fore re­tir­ing three years ago, tweeted images of a na­tional news­pa­per re­port bear­ing his face, and another that read: “Taken from Tran­mere pro­gramme to­day. The clue is in the write up ....19 years old??”

Of his younger name­sake, who had three goals be­fore yes­ter­day’s game with Chel­tenham, he added: “That’s what he will look like if he doesn’t mois­turise!”

Which one: Mullin or Mullin?
