Geoffrey Ian "Geoff" Cullen (born 16 March 1977) is a former professional Australian cricketer who played a single match for Western Australia during the 2000–01 season. From Perth, Cullen played matches for the state second XI and colts teams from the 1998–99 season onwards.[1] He did not make his first-class debut until the 2000–01 season, playing a single Sheffield Shield match against Victoria in early March 2001.[2] In the match, played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Cullen scored five runs in Western Australia's first innings, and did not bat in the second.[3] Having also had a particularly successful season for Claremont–Nedlands in the local grade cricket competition, scoring 852 runs at an average of 56.80, Cullen was awarded a state contract from the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) for the following season.[4] Despite being a regular selection in the second XI during both the 2001–02 and 2002–03 seasons, he did not play at senior level again.[1][5] Cullen did, however, go on to spend the 2008 English season playing for South Shields in the North East Premier League,[6] leading the team's batting averages.[7]
