Cobblers boss pleased to get four new signings over the line in the first three weeks of the summer

24 May 2019

Cobblers boss Keith Curle is pleased to have completed the signings of Matty Warburton, Joe Martin, Chris Lines and Harry Smith and says there is more still to come.

“We’ve shown good intent and with Chris and Joe, two players who we tried to get in January and weren't quite able to do the deals at that time, it was good to get them over the line,” he said.

“When we bring in players it’s not just about their talent it’s about the character of the individual and that’s why we have two or three meetings with the player before we make a decision.

“I’m not going to sign any player before meeting them first.

“It’s important the players have an empathy and a desire with the football club and they want to be a part of what we are trying to build.

“I like to have people around me with a hunger and a desire to improve and who want to be part of this football club.

“I know that the supporters here if they see a group of players giving everything then they will back them one hundred per cent.

“We want to be a progressive club and our aim next season is to be operating at the top end of the division.

“We want a culture where the players can learn, develop and improve and ultimately win games because that’s what we are all about, winning games.”
