The signing of Marc McNulty is a statement of ambition. A player a number of clubs in League One and Two were chasing as a priority, and we’ve managed to convince him to sign for us. A nippy striker who fits the mould as something of a goal-poacher, McNulty has shown over the past few years that he is the calibre of striker who could be in the race for the title of League Two top-scorer. The sort of player you would sign if you’re looking to get out of this division.
As with any signing, there is no guarantee that this will be a success. Last season wasn’t a great one for him, playing a back-up role at both Bradford and Sheffield United. The bigger issue could well be whether Mark Robins’ tactics will get the best out of an out-and-out goalscorer. We know Robins generally likes to play one up front, and that can leave that lone striker with a lot of work to do on their own. Nonetheless, this is a signing to be pleased with and an indication that we’re one of the bigger draws for players at this level of football.
