CFU Chairman Andrew Stephen said, "There is no doubt that Paul fully deserves this award for his astonishing goalscoring feat. Promotion has been a real team effort though and whilst Paul has contributed hugely towards the team's achievement, I am sure that his team mates have contributed hugely towards his."
Nearly 1000 supporters cast their votes in the week leading up to the final day of the season and despite there being any number of worthy winners from the Cambridge United promotion winning squad of 2020/21, Mullin received over 50% of the vote, making him the clear winner.
Paul said "I would like to thank all the fans who have voted for me and supported me and the team all season long," he said. "I can't really put into words what it all means - it has been the greatest season of my career and I am so proud of what we have all achieved."
