Witton Albion are delighted to announce the signing of central defender Steve McNulty.

McNulty, 36, has a wealth of experience with more than 600 career appearances under his belt, including many in the Football League.

He began his career at Liverpool and skippered the Reds at under-19 level before his release from the Anfield club in 2003.

The Liverpool-born centre-back moved into non-league football, starting at Burscough before moving to Vauxhall Motors and then Barrow, with whom he captained to promotion into the Conference.

A move to Fleetwood Town in 2009 saw McNulty achieve two more promotions, helping the club rise from the Conference North to League Two, again as captain.

After leaving The Cod Army, the defender moved south to join Luton Town and once more earned promotion as The Hatters moved from the Conference into League Two, voted into the PFA League Two Team of the Season by his peers in the process.

McNulty returned to the North West to join Tranmere Rovers in 2015 and yet won his fifth and sixth career promotion to help the Wirral club back from non-league into League One, playing an instrumental role in the heart of the defence and as captain.

Following his release from Prenton Park, McNulty joined National League North side York City with whom he spent last term, helping The Minstermen to the play-offs where they lost out to eventual winners Altrincham.

The central defender joins Isaac Baldwin, Scott Bakkor, Josh Gregory, Steven Tames and James Hooper as new arrivals in to Carl Macauley’s squad at Wincham Park.

Another good signing. We are building a really good squad and I expect us to be in the running for the play offs, maybe even the league. Good work from Carl and Gary.
