Soccer is a game that brings a rollercoaster of emotions, and Wrexham AFC‘s recent match against Crewe Alexandra exemplified this perfectly. Not only did Wrexham’s star player, Paul Mullin, deliver an exceptional performance to honor his deceased grandfather, but the match also became a record-making one. And not just any normal record but equaled a 113-year-old record.
Despite their efforts, the team supported by Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds did not emerge victorious. The game resulted in a tie of 3-3, a common occurrence for the team during their EFL League Two season with a total of four draws so far. However, this specific draw will always be remembered in the club’s history.
Wrexham has tied a record that has been standing for a century.
At the 36th minute of the game, Wrexham encountered a challenge as they were already trailing 1-0. Ryan Bernat was given a red card, reducing the team to ten players on the field. Despite the unfavorable circumstances, Super Paul Mullin rose to the occasion and took charge.
Mullin not only displayed his impressive abilities but also took the chance to honor his deceased grandfather. Through his courageous actions, he netted two goals, saving Wrexham from a potential defeat. This accomplishment not only secured a crucial point for the team but also tied a record.
