League Two newcomers Northampton Town have signed up former Yeovil Town striker Andy Williams. The 31 year old has penned a two year contract, having left Doncaster Rovers at the end of the 2017-18 season, and will officially become a Cobblers player on July 1st. Williams had been linked with a move to Cheltenham Town since leaving the Keepmoat Stadium, but if that was Gary Johnson's plan, then he'll now have to look elsewhere, with the Cobblers unveiling him today.
Williams had spent three years with Doncaster, and was part of their 2016-17 promotion winning squad that took them up into League One. Overall he scored 29 times in 103 appearances, although the majority of those came during his first two years at Donny. Before that, he was on a mini-tour of the West Country, taking in Swindon Town, Yeovil Town (twice), Bristol Rovers and Hereford United. Northampton manager Dean Austin has said that there was a lot of competition for his signature:
"I am delighted to make Andy our first signing of the summer. We said that we needed to add more goals to the team, and Andy has a proven record of scoring at both League 1 and League 2 level and not only does he know where the back of the net is, he brings a wealth of experience too. We also spoke about recruiting characters, and Andy is certainly the right type of character. He is a very good professional, he plays with his heart on his sleeve and he will offer invaluable experience for the young strikers we have in the squad. He has excellent movement and he is a fine finisher. He also has experience of winning promotion from League 2 recently and that is important. We had to move quickly to tie this deal up, there was a lot of interest in Andy but we are delighted we have been able to bring him to Sixfields."
