Cobblers capture Abbey
Northampton Town have signed former Chesterfield and Luton Town goalkeeper Nathan Abbey.

The 24-year-old has moved to the Sixfields Stadium on a three-month deal with a view to a longer-term contract.

Abbey was first-choice keeper at Chesterfield last season but could not agree terms on a new contract.

And so he has moved to Northampton to challenge fellow new signing Lee Harper for the number one shirt.

"At 24 he has good experience and has already played more than 100 senior games," manager Kevan Broadhurst told the club's website.

"I worked with him at Luton Town and know he has good ability and he has the chance to push Lee Harper for a first-team spot."
