Inspirational defender makes Cobblers return

Northampton Town have signed defender Clarke Carlisle from York City, initially on loan until the January transfer window.

The 33 year was an inspirational figure as he helped the Cobblers avoid relegation last season and has spent the first part of this season with the Minstermen.

Carlisle is available to make his debut in Tuesday night's visit from Morecambe, with half price tickets available until 5pm on Tuesday via

"I am absolutely delighted to have Clarke back on board," said boss Aidy Boothroyd.

"He was a huge part of the squad that stayed up last season.  I am really pleased he has agreed to come here and to help us build on the good work we started last season and have carried on so far this season.

"Clarke is exactly who we need right now, he is exactly the right type of person and the right type of player. 

“I am sure he will form a successful partnership with Kelvin Langmead, who I think has been outstanding so far this season. Those two know each other from last season and it is great to have them reunited."
