Pedigree Deegan Snapped Up
Gary Deegan is another trialist that has done enough to impress Aidy Boothroyd into handing him a contract.
Boothroyd rates the midfielder highly and thinks he'll definitely add something to Northampton this season. He said: 'Gary is a player with a good pedigree and I am pleased to have signed him. He will give us bite and aggression in the midfield and he is a good blend with the midfielders we already have here.
'He has settled in well during pre-season both on and off the field and he is another good addition to the squad.'
The 25-year-old, formerly with the likes of Coventry and Hibs, has penned a one-year deal with the Cobblers following his trial this summer.
If Deegan can live up to the expectation that the boss has of him it should be a move that works out beneficial for all concerned.
