Town have completed the signing of striker Mark Cullen on a two-year contract after he was released by Premier League-bound Hull City.

The 21-year-old was loaned to Stockport County last season, scoring four times in 16 games, and played twice against Luton where he impressed Town boss John Still.

Cullen played in the Premier League whilst with Hull, scoring on his full debut in a 2-2 draw against Wigan Athletic in 2010.

Unable to break into the Tigers’ starting XI on a regular basis as the Humberside club changed managers, Cullen has also been loaned out to Bradford and Bury in recent campaigns.

He was unable to help Stockport survive in the Blue Square Bet Premier despite some fine performances, but the Town were able to beat off competition from a number of clubs to secure the striker’s signature.

On his new signing, Still told Town’s official website: “I’ve been aware of Mark since he’s been at Hull under Peter Taylor, who thought a lot of the boy. He was on loan at Stockport last year and I thought he was outstanding against us.

“I made a lot of calls to try and get him here and hand on heart I didn’t think he would come down to Conference level.

“But Mark’s got good ability, he can score, his movement’s clever and I think he’s going to develop into a really good player.”
