Left back added to squad after impressive trial

23 July 2021

Northampton Town have signed left back Ali Koiki on a one year contract.

Koiki, who turns 22 next month, started his career with Burnley and made 15 appearances with Swindon Town during a loan spell in 2019.

He moved to Bristol Rovers in 2020 and played 13 times, scoring once.

"Supporters will have seen what Ali was all about in his performance against Nottingham Forest," said manager Jon Brady.

"I thought he did well on Tuesday and we have been impressed with what we have seen from him in training over the last few days too.

"He has an excellent attitude, he is in good shape physically and he has settled well in to the group.

"It is important to have depth in the squad and to have competition and Ali certainly brings that to the left back position.

“His main priority is of course the defensive side of the game but he can also attack from full back and that is important.

"He has experience of playing in both League 1 and League 2 and I know Ali is excited by the challenge of joining Northampton Town."
