Former Yeovil Town trialist and loanee Lawson D'Ath has managed to earn himself a contract with League Two side Northampton Town. Having turned out for Bristol Rovers, Yeovil Town and Eastleigh during the summer, following his release by Reading at the end of last season, he had failed to catch the eye of any of the managers he turned out for during that time.
Having left Eastleigh as a trialist, he returned there last Friday as an opposition player, playing for the Cobblers in a game that the Football League side won 1-0. That was good enough for Northampton boss Chris Wilder to offer him a deal until January 2015 that will see him play for the Sixfields side. Wilder told his club's website:
"Lawson did well and we feel he will add something to the squad. I felt we were a body short in midfield and Lawson will give us a good option in there. He did well at Eastleigh and we are pleased he will be part of the squad."
D'Ath turned out for the club during the second half of Yeovil's 1-1 draw with Basingstoke Town at their Camrose ground in July, but was not retained after that match.
