Northampton Town forward Matty Warburton has joined Yeovil Town on loan for the season.

The 28-year-old starred for Stockport County as they returned to the National League in 2019. He earned a move to the EFL with Northampton last May.

Warburton makes what is perhaps a surprising move away from the Cobblers for the season, given he has made six appearances already in 2020/21 and scored twice.

Manager Keith Curle explained to the club website: “Matt has done well for us so far this season, but competition for places in his position is really tough in the squad, and moving forwards, he may not have played the amount of football he would have wanted.

“He is an excellent professional and he wants and needs to be playing regularly, so this move makes sense for all parties.”
