Skipper extends Sixfields stay
Northampton Town striker Marc Richards has signed a new one year contract with the club.
Richards is the current top scorer for the Cobblers in 2016/17, scoring 13 goals from October onwards, taking his tally to 62 for the club and nearly 200 career goals in total.
The striker returned to the club in the summer of 2014 and this new contract will extend his hugely successful second spell at Sixfields.
"Marc is not just a very good player, he is a captain, a leader and someone who helps sets the tone in the dressing room," said manager Justin Edinburgh.
"He has a fantastic attitude, his goal tally this season is impressive, he looks as fit and strong as ever and we are delighted we have retained his services.
"I know he feels happy and settled at the club, and we have re-signed a top, top professional and someone who can help us take the club forward.
“In the last two days we have kept hold of two of our key players from the last two seasons, who have scored 55 goals for the club in that time, and it is an excellent way to begin our summer’s work.
“I know the supporters hold both players in very high esteem and I am sure they will be delighted with this news.”
