Former Barrow man McNulty joins Luton in time for Holker Street trip

FORMER Barrow AFC central defender Steve McNulty is due to return to Holker Street tomorrow – in the orange of Luton.

HEAD FOR HEIGHTS: Steve McNulty, during his Barrow AFC days, wins this aerial battle. He has been included in Luton’s squad for tomorrow’s match

The 29-year-old former Bluebirds captain joined the Hatters yesterday from Fleetwood Town on a free transfer.

McNulty arrives at Kenilworth Road on a conditional 18-month deal and goes straight into the squad to face Barrow, says the Luton Town club website.

McNulty signed for Fleetwood for £17,000 in June 2009 from Barrow and played a leading role in the Cod Army’s rise from the Blue Square Bet North to the Football League, captaining the side to two promotions, including last season’s title success in the Conference.

He follows hot on the heels of former Southend United winger Dave Martin, who impressed the Hatters management staff in training following his release from Southend.

Described as a classy, old-fashioned winger, Martin, 27, made his name with Crystal Palace and Millwall as a youngster.

Although Luton made their exit from the FA Trophy on Tuesday, losing 3-0 at Grimsby, they will be buoyed by their tremendous run in the FA Cup which has seen them take the scalps of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Premier League Norwich.

The Hatters sit just outside the Blue Squae Bet Conference Premier play-off positions in sixth place, and were impressive when they met Barrow in three weeks ago, thumping the Bluebirds 6-1.

It was one of the most one-sided games of football Barrow have been involved in since their promotion to non-league’s top-flight five years ago.

Former Bluebirds striker Jon Shaw bagged a hat-trick as the Hatters ran riot in a result that was even worse than 5-1 defeat AFC suffered at the same ground last term.
