Paul Mullin hopes to keep proving people wrong after a fine start to his Morecambe career.

The 19-year-old already has three goals to his name in the Shrimps’ perfect start to the season having been released by Huddersfield in the summer.

And having always believed in himself the former Liverpool youngster wants to keep on making his mark.

Mullin said: “I always knew I was good enough to be at Huddersfield, I’ve always believed in myself.

“But when someone doesn’t believe in you you’ve just got to show them why they should have done.

“It’s what I came here to do and hopefully I’ll keep doing it.”

Mullin scored both goals on his full Football League debut in the 2-1 win against Cambridge and the striker admitted it was a game he wouldn’t forget in a hurry.

He said: “I loved every minute of it.

“I thought I could do that if I got a chance and I took it. Hopefully now I can go on from there and score as many as I can.

“It was a battle. Everything was in the air and long from them. They wanted to get as many men forward as possible.

“The lads and myself had to dig in and just try as hard as we could to keep them out and thankfully we did it enough and I got the goal to win it.

“But it was a team performance. Everyone dug in as hard as they could and we got the result we wanted.”

It was a fourth win out of four for the Shrimps in League 2 this season and Mullin said spirits couldn’t be higher in the Globe Arena dressing room.

He said: “Obviously all the lads and the fans are made up with the way things are going,

“We’ve got to keep going and hopefully stay unbeaten for as long as we can.

“Staying at the top is the plan.”

The Shrimps look more likely than ever to stay at the sharp end of the division with a deeper squad meaning there’s competition for places in every position.

Mullin said: “I love a bit of competition.

“I don’t know whether that’s the case for everyone but this season we’ve got a great squad and hopefully we can compete at the top.”
