Wrexham issue major update on Paul Mullin's injury and reveal exactly when he'll return

Wrexham star Paul Mullin is currently injured.

Wrexham have issued a major update on the fitness of Paul Mullin and revealed when he should be ready to return to action.

This season Wrexham will play in League One for the first time in 20 years, but they will begin the campaign without star striker Paul Mullin.

The 29-year-old underwent spinal surgery in June to correct a long-term lower-back and hamstring issue, with the club saying it was necessary to "ensure he is fit for the majority of the 2024/25 campaign."

Mullin will definitely miss Wrexham's pre-season tour in North America, which will see his side face Bournemouth, Chelsea and Vancouver Whitecaps.

Now, Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson has confirmed how much of the new season he expects Mullin to miss.

"Mulls has had a problem with his back which has affected his hamstring a little bit," said Parkinson, via The Leader.

"Initially, we felt a period of rest would do the trick but it got to the point where progress wasn't happening so between us all we had to make a decision.

"We sat down with Mulls in the summer and spoke about it, that having the operation now gives him the best chance to only miss the start of the season.

"Mulls is going to be close to maybe missing a couple of games at the start of the season if everything goes well but no more than that.

"It is a blow but he is a fit lad and doesn't take long to get back. He will have his own mini pre-season and we will get him back as fit as we can."

It's the second year in a row that Mullin - who has scored 105 goals in three season at The Racecourse - will miss the start of the season through injury.

The striker missed nine games at the start of 2024-25 after suffering a punctured lung and fracturing four ribs during a friendly against Manchester United.

Wrexham will begin their first season back in the third tier on August 10 at home to Wycombe Wanderers.
