Plymouth Argyle have signed former Peterborough United midfielder Josh Simpson on a one year deal, confirmed on their official website.
The centre midfielder was signed on a free transfer after rejecting a new deal at Crawley Town and will join up with his new teammates this week.
The 28 -year-old spent four years at hometown Cambridge City before signing for neighbouring team Histon.
In his time at Histon, the talented midfielder impressed scoring 16 goals in 57 games resulting in interest from Peterborough United before eventually signing for Posh on a permanent deal.
He was then loaned out to Southend United at the start of the 2010/11 campaign before signing for an aspiring Crawley Town in January 2011 following their promotion.
Simpson made himself a key figure in a Crawley side that achieved successive promotions, working under newly appointed assistant manager Craig Brewster at the time, a figure who was surely a big influence in him signing for the Pilgrims. He then took on the role of club captain and made 40 appearances in the next two seasons at Broadfield Stadium.
An injury ended his season early last year but he now looks to regain his form with the promotion chasing Pilgrims. Argyle have arguably missed an engine in midfielder since the departure of former club captain Conor Hourihane and the Green Army will be hoping that he can now fill that role that was so badly missed last season.
