McNulty exit

31 January 2013

Fleetwood Town club captain Steve McNulty has joined Luton Town on a free transfer.

Fleetwood Town club captain Steve McNulty has joined Luton Town on a free transfer.

Steve’s first game for Fleetwood Town was the Blue Square North victory at home to Workington in August 2009. That result paved the way a successful career at Town as the central defender went on to skipper the side to two promotions. Promotion to the Football Conference was followed by the club’s first-ever appearance in the Football League this season.  The 29-year-old has been at the centre of that success with 155 games in all competitions and 7 goals. The defender has made just 20 starts this season as Town settled into life in League 2. McNulty arrives at Kenilworth Road on a 18-month deal and goes straight into the Town squad to face Barrow on Saturday.  The defender revisits the club he joined Town from when Luton visit Barrow this weekend. Fleetwood Town chairman Andy Pilley paid tribute to the defender. "First of all, I'd like to put it on record, that we wish Steve the very, very best at Luton Town. He's been absolutely fantastic and one of the best players in my 9 year era at Highbury". "He's been hugely influential - both on and off the pitch, played an enormous part in us winning two promotions and he's just been superb. I think a lot of people don't realise just how good of a footballer he really is and what a good lad he is". "He makes the manager's job an awful lot easier because he, too, won't accept defeats or draws and wants to win every single game. I cannot speak highly enough about him and he's always welcome at Highbury. I will be eternally grateful for everything he's done for Fleetwood Town".
