WREXHAM AFC superstar Paul Mullin has announced that he has become a patron for the autism charity, YourSpace.

The forward has become something of an icon since making the move from Cambridge United to the Racecourse in 2021.

Affectionately known as 'Super Paul Mullin', he's proving to be just that on and off the field for all things Wrexham.

The 28-year-old's latest announcement has seen him team up with Llay-based charity YourSpace, who provide activities to and act as a social club for children, young people and young adults with autism.

In January of this year, Mullin revealed that his son Albie had been diagnosed with autism.

He unveiled a new pair of boots in relation to that ahead of the massive FA Cup clash against Sheffield United at the Racecouse, which ended in a 3-3 draw.

During that same match, he showed a touch of class once more as he wore a pair of noise-cancelling headphones to walk out onto the pitch alongside club mascot Harry, who also has autism.

Now, to raise further awareness, Mullin teams up with YourSpace as a patron of the charity.

Announcing the news to his 54,000 followers on his Instagram page, the star striker wrote: "I am pleased to announce that I have agreed to be a patron of Wrexham based autism charity Your Space.

"As some of you know my son Albi has been recently diagnosed as on the spectrum so it is a cause that is close to my family's heart.

"Your Space are marking their tenth anniversary in 2023. I hope to get involved in some way during these celebrations."

Andrew Edwards, fundraiser for YourSpace said: "We are absolutely delighted about Paul Mullin agreeing to become a Patron of Your Space, the Llay based Autism charity. In my role as the charity’s paid fundraiser, I coordinated and organised this in recent weeks with Paul’s agent, Nicola Nolan from Unique Sports Group.

"Since yesterday, when we found out, we have received more correspondence on our Facebook page along with Mr Mullin’s Social Media channels than probably anything Your Space has ever been involved in ten years as a charity."
