NORTHAMPTON TOWN SIGN GOALKEEPER STEVE ARNOLD FOR UNDISCLOSED FEE

Shrewsbury Town stopper joins the Cobblers

5 June 2019

Northampton Town have signed Shrewsbury Town keeper Steve Arnold for an undisclosed fee.

After signing professional with Norwich City, 6ft 5in Arnold made his Football League debut with Stevenage, making 31 appearances while at Broadhall Way.

He twice helped Forest Green Rovers to the National League play offs making 45 appearances, with his most recent club being Shrewsbury Town, whom he joined in July 2018.

The 29 year old played 32 times for the Shrews in 2018/19, becoming the club's first choice keeper.

"I am delighted to bring Steve to the club," said manager Keith Curle.

"Our squad needs a number of very important elements next season, with competition for places and having the right characters in the dressing room vital, and Steve ticks both boxes.

"David Cornell did very well for us last season but you need competition for places all over the pitch, including in goal and David and Steve will challenge each other and compete with each other each week for that starting place to bring the best out of each other.

"Steve is a good size, he is strong and he is a presence. He is a good organiser, a good talker and he is very ambitious.

"He did well at Shrewsbury to earn himself the position of first choice as last season progressed.

"Steve will fit in well in the dressing room too. He has that winning mentality and he is another piece of the jigsaw in place."

Arnold has signed a 2 year contract with Northampton Town.
