Super Paul Mullin made a switch to Wrexham in 2021. The new owners, Ryan Reynolds, and Rob McElhenney, lured the striker to play in the fifth tier with a significant project in the pipeline. Liverpool-born Mullin accepted the offer and joined the Red Dragons. He left Cambridge United after firing them to the third division and winning the Golden Boot of EFL League Two for the 2020-21 season.
