The long awaited comeback for fans favourite, Johnny Mullins, will officially take place tomorrow when the Reading reserve team team Captain will take possession of the full back slot soon to be vacated by Wayne Evans. Evans, who announced his retirement from playing this week, is leaving to take up a coaching position with a Shropshire coaching team and to eventually travel the world coaching.
Mullins, who has seen his progress into the Reading first team take a back seat while his manager, Steve Coppell, brings in triallists from other non league clubs, has been told by Coppell that he definitely has a future at the Maj. Also the fact that he spends most of his free time at his girlfriend's house in Bewdley also makes sense, both for us and his love life.
Johnny made twenty one appearances for us in his time here last season and scored twice for us. It still didn't save us from relegation though and he spent the last three games out of the side due to injury. He was just as gutted as the rest of us when the axe finally fell on our League status.
John will be here for an initial four weeks and will be in the squad that faces Hereford on Saturday.
