L2 Round-up: Grimsby hunt former hitman, Northampton make big transfer statement

Published

on

The transfer scene in League Two is beginning to heat up as managers return from holidays and start getting down to business.

Clubs are starting to mould their playing squad for the coming season, none more so than Northampton who have made serious strides in building a top seven squad.

We begin our round-up of the moves and rumours at Sixfields with a triple signing yesterday.

Alan McCormack, Steve Arnold, Nicky Adams

Northampton Town made a significant statement as they picked up two proven midfielders yesterday, as well as a League One keeper.

Alan McCormack is fresh from successive promotions with Luton Town and joins on a one-year deal, whilst Nicky Adams helped Bury to second place last season.

He joins on a two-year deal, along with Shrewsbury stopper Steve Arnold an exciting day for Cobblers fans.

Andy Cook

Grimsby Town are one of two clubs thought to be keeping tabs on Walsall striker Andy Cook, as reported by the Express and Star.

Cook bagged 14 goals in League One last season as Walsall were relegated, but he’s now being watched by his former employers, as well as ambitious Salford City, recently promoted from the National League.

Cook only joined the Saddlers last summer, leaving Tranmere Rovers following their promotion to the Football League.

Timi Elsnik

The Derby County youngster has recently been released, but he’s a player that Mansfield Town fans have suggested their side should move for this summer.

The talented midfielder spent time on loan at Field Mill last season and the Mansfield Chad reports that their supporters would like to see him return.

The 21-year-old would be available on a free transfer, but made just nine league appearances for the Stags.

Regan Poole

Another youngster recently released by his parent club is Regan Poole, who spent the season on loan with Newport County, as reported by the South Wales Argus.

Poole was a key part of their rise up the table which ended in play-off heartbreak with a 119th minute Connor Jennings strike beating them at Wembley.

He has admitted he doesn’t know where his future lies, despite his good form for the Exiles.

Kyle Knoyle

The Swindon Town right back has snubbed a new deal at the County Ground, opting instead to join strugglers Cambridge United, as reported by the Swindon Advertiser.

Knoyle, a former West Ham trainee, had a solid season for the Robins and was offered a new deal by Richie Wellens, but has opted to join Colin Calderwood at the Abbey Stadium.
