Liverpool careerEdit

Liverpool scouts spotted the then-Under 10s goalkeeper Fulton playing for his local youth side Brunlea at the end of 2007, and offered the youngster a two-and-a-half week trial at Kirkby. After impressing, Fulton signed a youth contract with the Merseyside club. Fulton has progressed well through the Academy and was presented with a scholarship deal in January 2011 at the age of 15- a year before he could actually start it. He was promoted to the Under 18s side for the 2012-13 season and competed with the likes of Tyrell Belford and Ryan Crump for a starting spot. He made his debut for the side on 1 September 2012 in an unlucky 2-0 loss to Manchester City. Fulton quickly established himself as the first choice keeper for the U18s and the U19s during their run in the NextGen tournament, producing consistently impressive performances throughout the season that drew much praise. He finished the season with 23 appearances for the U18s out of a possible 30, and also made five appearances in the NextGen Series. Liverpool rewarded Fulton's outstanding season between the sticks with a professional contract at the end of the season- being only one of four Academy prospects to receive this.

In the 2013-14 season, Fulton found himself in a difficult position as the club sought to hand his understudies more game time for the U18s- meaning Fulton only played three times for the side during the season, however the U21s goalkeeping berth was not readily available. He went on to make four appearances for the U21s during their 2013-14 season, as he shared the goalkeeping duties with Danny Ward and Yusuf Mersin.

In July 2018, after failing to make a first team appearance for Liverpool, Fulton was allowed to leave the club.
