Goalkeeper joins on loan until January

23 August 2019

Northampton Town have signed Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Andrew Fisher on loan until the January transfer window.

The move comes to offer competition for the goalkeeping spot with Steve Arnold sidelined after picking up an injury at Port Vale on August 10th.

Fisher is a goalkeeper that has shown excellent progress at Ewood Park and is highly regarded, signing a new 3 year contract in 2018. He has also enjoyed a loan spell with FC United.

He made three appearances for Rovers in the EFL Trophy, and manager Keith Curle has said he will offer competition for David Cornell.

"I am a big believer in competition for the goalkeeping position," he said.

"We planned to have that this season with Steve Arnold and David Cornell, but with Steve sidelined through injury I felt we needed to strengthen that area of the squad.

"Bradley Lashley is an excellent young keeper, but we think he will be better suited getting games rather than sitting on the bench, so Andrew will come in and compete with David Cornell. We will then be looking at loan options for Bradley.”

"Andrew is a good young keeper, and we are pleased to welcome him to the club."
