Dave Challinor spoke about his new signing:

Cullen is an experienced forward, a finisher, if you get him in the right areas he will be a great asset to the team.

He is one we have obviously looked at for a while, featuring in pre-season. Cullen is currently still recovering from the injury he sustained against Spennymoor and hopefully, we have a clear indication of how long that will be for him in the next coming days.

Cullen spoke about his new club:

I know the Pools fans are passionate, I know they get right behind the team so it is an exciting move for me and I can't wait to get properly started.

I have obviously been around the squad for a good few weeks now. They are a great set of lads and everyone is eager and hungry for the new season.
