Centre back becomes a Cobbler

14 August 2020

Northampton Town have signed central defender Fraser Horsfall on a 2 year contract.

The highly rated 6ft 3in, 23 year old began his career at Huddersfield Town and after a number of loan spells, moved to Kidderminster Harriers in 2017, making 76 appearances for the Aggborough side.

His performances attracted the interest of EFL clubs with a number of Championship clubs monitoring his progress before a move to Macclesfield Town in the summer of 2019 and he made 31 appearances at the Moss Rose last season.

"Fraser is a player who is learning and developing the art of defending and is someone we have identified as being on an upward curve," said manager Keith Curle.

"I like his character and the way he has approached his own development. He is an ambitious young man. His decision to leave Huddersfield Town to go and play first team football for Kidderminster a couple of years ago shows what he is all about - he took himself out of his comfort zone to further his career and to go and play senior football and he quickly stepped up again to play league football. He is determined to keep improving, to take on challenges head on and to keep developing and we think he can do that with us.

"He is competitive, aggressive and he likes defending. He has taken accountability and responsibility for his own development and his own career and I like that strength of mind and that determination.

"I think he is a great fit for us and we are a great fit for him at this stage of his career."

The signing is subject to EFL approval.
