Witton Albion boss Carl Macauley has added veteran defender Steve McNulty to his list of quality signings for the new Northern Premier League season.
Pictured winning the National League play-offs with Tranmere Rovers in 2016, the 26-year-old central defender and serial winner was unveiled at Wincham Park on Thursday following the recent arrival of Isaac Baldwin, Scott Bakkor, Josh Gregory, Steven Tames and James Hooper on Tuesday.
McNulty has wealth of experience with more than 600 career appearances under his belt since kicking off his career at Liverpool and skippering the Reds at under-19 level.
After his release from the Anfield club in 2003, the Liverpool-born defender moved into Non-League, starting at Burscough before moving to Vauxhall Motors and captained Barrow 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 last term, helping The Minstermen to the play-offs where they lost out to eventual winners Altrincham.
