Out with the old, in with new Paul Mullin
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?
