Defender pens 2 year deal at Sixfields

12 July 2021

Northampton Town have signed defender Aaron McGowan on a 2 year contract.

The 24 year old right back became Morecambe's youngest ever player when he made his debut for the Shrimps in the 2012/13 season, going on to make 119 appearances.

In the 2017/18 season he picked up the Player of the Year, Fans Player of the Year, and local media Player of the Year award.

He opted to sign for Hamilton Academical in June 2018 and made 38 appearances, again winning the club's Player of the Year and Fans Player of the Year awards.

He captained the Hamilton side on a number of occasions in 2019/20 as he won the club's Player of the Year award for the second year running.

In the summer of 2020, he moved to Kilmarnock after turning down a new contract at Hamilton, and has now opted to move to Sixfields.

"We are delighted to bring Aaron to the club," said manager Jon Brady.

"He has an excellent pedigree with a good amount of experience and is another player who is a good age for us.

"Although he has played nearly 200 senior games already, he is still only 24 with the potential to improve further.

"He is a leader, a talker, an organiser, and an aggressive defender who plays with an edge to his game. He is one who has attracted interest from a number of clubs throughout his career and we are pleased we have been able to bring him to Sixfields."
