Shrimps star Mullin retires

PAUL Mullin has announced his retirement from professional football.

The popular 37-year-old striker has called time on his career after picking up a back injury that has ruled him out for this season.

He picked up the injury in March after his last appearance for Morecambe in the 3-3 draw at Northampton.

He said: “It’s not the way I wanted to go out but it makes sense.

“When you get to my age you have to listen to your body and the injury I have means there is no way I could train full time now and it is best that I call it a day.”
