Cobblers bring in wing back on 2 year contract

8 August 2020

Northampton Town have signed left sided wing back Joseph Mills on a 2 year contract.

The former Forest Green Rovers skipper rejected new terms with the New Lawn club to make the move to the PTS Academy Stadium.

Mills made 70 appearances for Rovers in the last two seasons, scoring 12 goals, after previously playing for Perth Glory in Australia.

He began his career at Southampton where he made 34 appearances and gained experience via various loan spells.

He moved on to Reading, Burnley and Oldham before heading out to Australia and then returned to England with Forest Green in a career that has seen him make nearly 300 senior appearances and score 17 goals.

Mills is a player who Keith Curle has been chasing and someone who has generated significant interest from other clubs, with Curle delighted to land his latest new addition.

"Joseph adds an excellent balance to us and gives us real depth in the wide positions," he said.

"He has a lot of experience and is a typical wing back, he is very good defensively but he loves to get forward too.

"He understands what we require from our wing backs, he will fit in well with the way we play and he produces quality in wide areas.

"Joseph is a very fit lad who plays with a lot of energy and, going forward, is someone who thrives on delivering balls in to the area and creating opportunities for the front players.

"He is a real leader, he captained his former club and he is a character who will fit in well in the dressing room.

"We are really pleased to sign Joseph who had attracted a lot of interest from other clubs, and our work to strengthen the squad remains ongoing."
