Northampton Town sign Chesterfield striker Marc Richards



Northampton Town pulled off a major coup today by signing Chesterfield striker Marc Richards on a three-year deal the club have confirmed.

The club confirmed the signing on the club’s twitter page and fans of the club have been tweeting with their delight of such a major signing in the lower leagues.

The club announced on the club website that they have managed to pull off the signing for no money at all. They report that Richards was offered a new extension at the newly promoted League One side but he has rejected it to re-sign for the Cobblers on a three-year deal.

The 31-year old striker was top goalscorer for Chesterfield in League One having scored 12 goals in 33 league appearances. Last season he only managed to score a respectable eight goals in 38 games. However, that has proved to be his worst goal scoring full-season.

He had once became the first player to become top goalscorer of Port Vale for five consecutive seasons and Northampton will be hoping that the 31-year old will be able to rekindle some of that prolific form next season.
