Striker becomes third new arrival of the last few days

21 June 2022

Northampton Town have signed striker Danny Hylton from Luton Town on a two year contract effective from July 1st.

The experienced Hylton who has won promotion five times in his career, joins the Cobblers after spending six years at Luton Town where he helped the Hatters from League 2 to the Championship play offs, scoring fifty goals in his two League 2 campaigns with the Hatters.

Hylton started his career with Aldershot from 2006 to 2013, scoring 48 times as the Shots won promotion to the EFL.

After a spell at Rotherham United which included loans with Bury and AFC Wimbledon, Hylton moved to Oxford United in June 2014 and scored thirty goals in a two year spell at the Kassam Stadium.

In the summer of 2016 he moved to Luton Town and scored 62 times in 170 games for the Hatters in six years.

"Danny is an experienced striker who knows what it takes," said manager Jon Brady.

"He is an excellent professional and his experience and know how will be a real asset to us.

"He has been there and done it, he played a lot of football in the Championship last season and started the play off semi final second leg.

“He will fit in with our style. He has an excellent scoring record and his all round play is good. He can help get us and keep us high up the pitch.

“Not only that, his knowledge will be a real asset to the other strikers we have at the club. I know he had other options but we are delighted he has agreed to come to Sixfields.

"We think he is an excellent fit for us and we are really pleased to add Danny to the squad."
