Mark Cullen joins following release from Hull
The Hatters have completed the signing of striker Mark Cullen on a two-year contract.
Released by Premier League-bound Hull City this month, 21-year-old Cullen spent a spell out on loan at Stockport County last season.
He scored four times in 16 appearances for County, playing twice against the Town and impressing manager John Still in the process.
A livewire, poacher of a forward, Ashington-born Cullen played in the Premier League whilst with Hull. Having scored 27 goals for the youth team in 2009/10 he was handed a handful of Premier League appearances, and scored 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 lutontown.co.uk: "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, he's movement's clever and I think he's going to develop into a really good player."
