Northampton sign Swindon right back
A former "Samsung Win A Pro Contract" winner with Swindon has joined Northampton on loan.
Chris Smith will ease the defensive problems that The Cobblers have, a fact that isn't lost on Aidy Boothroyd: 'We have seven games coming up in a period with the loan window closed and it is about making sure we are well equipped to deal with that period, not leaving ourselves short.
'With the loan window closing and injuries to John Johnson and David Artell, I felt we needed another defender in the squad to see us through a hectic run of games.
'Chris is here to give us the option of an extra defender through a busy period.'
22-year-old Smith will stay with Northampton until January 1st 2013.
