Paul Mullin was on the verge of quitting football after his release from Liverpool FC at the age of 16. Head of Player Welfare at the Academy, Phil Roscoe, referred Mullin to the Liverpool Football College and he has never looked back.
Mullin spearheaded the attack which saw the College win the League and National Cup double, netting two goals in the final.
Working closely with coaches Dave Rowe and Tom Culshaw, Mullin made rapid progress and his form caught the attention of talent scouts. At the end of the season he was snapped up on a two year professional contract with Huddersfield Town. At the time Mullin spoke about how the coaches helped him at Liverpool Football College, ”I could not praise the coaches highly enough here. They have helped build my confidence up so much and improved small details in my game, such as my movement off the ball and link play. I cannot recommend this college enough for young lads who have ambitions of breaking back into football after the disappointment of release from a club.”
Paul then moved onto Morecambe FC, where he was regularly amongst the goals, and in Summer 2017 he signed for League Two outfit, Swindon Town.
Mullin is a regular starter and still amongst the goals.
