Wrexham striker Paul Mullin has undergone spinal surgery and is set to miss the start of the League One campaign.

Mullin – who has scored over 100 goals in three seasons at Wrexham and was on stand-by for a Wales call-up last year – went under the knife to correct a long-term lower-back and hamstring issue.

“The club’s three-time, back-to-back top scorer and player of the season has managed the injury through conservative treatment following three years of concern,” read a Wrexham statement.

“However, during off-season training it became evident that this approach would not be able to continue and, following several consultations, it was determined that surgery would be the best way forward.

“Mullin underwent surgery in London in the middle of June to ensure he is fit for the majority of the 2024-25 campaign, as we look ahead to our first season back in Sky Bet League One.

“There is no timeframe as yet on Mullin’s return, who will work through rehab with the club’s medical department to ensure he can return to full fitness.”

Summer tour

Mullin will miss Wrexham’s summer tour to North America that will see the Welsh club, owned by Hollywood actors Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds, play Bournemouth, Chelsea and Vancouver Whitecaps.

The 29-year-old missed the start of last season after suffering a punctured lung and fracturing four ribs against Manchester United on Wrexham’s 2023 summer tour to the United States.

A big loss, but sure the management have options available within the club or bring a striker in….
Soon be the biggest club in Wales again like we were in the late 70’s….
