Wrexham ace appears to score ‘world class’ goal – but it’s not quite as it seems

What at first appeared to be a world class finish by Wrexham goal machine Paul Mullin actually turned out to be nothing more than a piece of luck.

The prolific National League striker, who many believe would impress at Championship level, ran off celebrating what might've been his hat-trick during the eventual 4-3 win over Aldershot Town.

With one particular angle from behind the goal appearing to show the 28-year-old scoop the ball over onrushing Fulham loanee Luca Ashby-Hammond with his heel – he didn't.

One Twitter user wrote: "Paul Mullin’s goal for Wrexham… How is that even possible." As second added: "Now that's world class."

A third said: "Now that was astonishing." As a fourth agreed: "Watched this live, still can’t work out how he did it. Some player though."

However, footage from the club media clearly shows that his attempt was going nowhere near the back of the net until it hit Corey Jordan, with Mullin only grabbing two in the fixture.

With only one automatic promotion spot into League Two, co-owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney had very dramatic reactions to the triumph.

McElhenney tweeted: "I very may well die of a cardiac event this season. Football is magic/hell."

While Reynolds said: "Really testing the limits of appropriate drinking hours. Dear god, Wrexham AFC."

With Wrexham going on to secure another vital three points against Scunthorpe as Mullin took his tally for the season to 33 in all competitions, they now sit five points behind Notts County with two games in hand.

Having enjoyed a recent visit from Will Ferrell, Wrexham fans were also pleased to see Bill Sharp charged by the FA for his comments following their clash against Sheffield United.

The FA stated that the forward was found guilty of improper conduct, alleging that comments 'implied bias and/or attacked the referee’s integrity'.
