MITCH PINNOCK DELIGHTED TO JOIN THE COBBLERS

New signing can't wait to get going

9 June 2021

New signing Mitch Pinnock has been speaking after signing a two-year deal with Northampton Town.

The former AFC Wimbledon and Kilmarnock winger has high hopes and ambitions for his time at Sixfields, and says he can't wait to get started.

“Northampton are an ambitious club and I feel coming here is a great opportunity for me,” he said.

“The Gaffer has said a lot to me about what the club is looking to do and everything he has told me sounded good.

“He’s very positive and hopefully his attitude will filter on to the players and get everyone on the same page."

Like first summer arrival Nick Kabamba, Mitch has made the move to Sixfields from SPL outfit Kilmarnock and the winger is looking forward to linking up again with his former team-mate.

“Nick and I got on really well and he was one of my closest mates at Kilmarnock," he said.

“It will be good to link up with him again and I’m looking forward to it.

“Lockdown was quite tough for me up in Scotland but I enjoyed the football. It was a bit different but it was a good experience.

“It was a tough decision to leave Kilmarnock because I had a good relationship with the manager but I just felt I would be much more happy playing here.

“I played a couple of games in League 2 when I was 17 but this will be my first full season at this level. I have also played 70 odd times in League 1 and that was a great experience for me.

“I’m really looking forward to it, from what the Gaffer has said I will be playing on the left. I can also play the number ten role but the Gaffer has said he is looking for pace and power in the attacking roles so I think wide left will be my position.

“I think I’ve got a lot of energy for a wide player, I don’t mind doing the defensive side of the game as well but I like to get forward, put crosses in and take set pieces.

“I like to get the ball in the box and hopefully score a few goals as well.

“The Gaffer wants me to get forward and that suits me perfectly.”
