Paul Mullin wins the Sky Bet League Two Golden Boot award

8 May 2021

Cambridge United striker Paul Mullin has won the Sky Bet League Two Golden Boot award for the 2020/21 season.

Mullin’s total of 32 goals have played a vital part in firing Cambridge into Sky Bet League One, and are the most ever scored by a player in League Two. 

26-year-old Mullin featured in every game for the U’s this season, notching two hat-tricks and six braces, and scored an 80th minute goal to break the record on the final day in a 3-0 win against Grimsby Town.

Mullin joined Cambridge on loan last January and was limited to just six appearances and two goals in the curtailed campaign, but got off the mark in the opening game this season and never looked back. 

The Golden Boot award, which takes into account all league games, and does not include Play-Off fixtures, was presented to Mullin at on the final day of the League Two season, where Cambridge confirmed their promotion to Sky Bet League One. 

Mullin said: “It’s an honour to win the Golden Boot and this season has definitely been the highlight of my career so far. 

“To top off such a great personal season with promotion for the team only makes it even better.”
