Comments:

The locally-born player was a key member of the famed Iron Curtain side.

Mullard had been a prisoner of war for much of WW2 but he decided to become a football professional in 1946 playing for Walsall, Crewe and Stoke before joining the Valiants for £10,000 (plus Alan Martin) in 1951.

He was initially employed in an advanced role and finished as top-scorer in the 1951-52 campaign. By the time of the Iron Curtain campaign in 1953-54 he was used as a right-half.

He was injured in 1956 and transferred to Northwich Victoria.
