Date of birth
Mark Cullen wrote his name in the Blackpool history books when he fired the winner in the League Two Play-Off Final against Exeter City.
The striker capped a brilliant end to the 2016/17 season, which also saw him hit a hat-trick against Luton Town in the Sem-Finals, with a memorable day at Wembley.
Born in Ashington, Cullen came through the youth system at Hull City and made 28 appearances for The Tigers, including four at Premier League level. While on the books of Hull, he also spent time out on loan with Bradford City, Bury and Stockport County.
The striker signed for Blackpool from Luton in June 2015 after guiding them to promotion back to the EFL. He then netted nine times after Pool were relegated to League Two.
However, Cullen’s brilliant end to the next season in tangerine saw him finish on 13 goals and ensured his contract option taken for another 12 months.
