Winger to become a Cobbler from July 1st

15 June 2021

Northampton Town have signed Dylan Connolly on a 2 year deal effective from July 1st after the Dublin born winger rejected a new contract at SPL side St Mirren.

26 year old Connolly began his career with Bohemians and Shelbourne in Ireland and, after a spell with Ipswich Town, he returned to his native country to play nearly 100 times for Bray Wanderers and Dundalk.

He moved back to England and played 25 times for AFC Wimbledon in League 1 in 2019 - earning the man of the match award in their famous FA Cup win over West Ham United in January 2019 - before a loan spell at Bradford City in 2019/20 where he made 29 appearances.

He moved north of the border in 2020/21 and played 39 times for St Mirren last season.

"Dylan is a wide player with a lot of pace," said manager Jon Brady.

"He is direct, he takes on defenders and can deliver good quality balls in to the area.

"Dylan is a good age with a lot of experience of both League 1 and League 2 as well as playing in Scotland and we believe he is the type of player who supporters will enjoy watching and can have them on the edge of their seats. He has that spark to his game.

"I think is particularly important to have options in the squad in the attacking areas to help you play with a high level of energy and intensity.

"I know he had other options from other clubs so we are very pleased to welcome Dylan to the club. We are also progressing in our work to strengthen the squad in other areas and we hope to have more news on that in the coming days."
