Northampton Town signed the highly rated Stockport County attacking midfielder Matt Warburton on a 2 year contract in the summer of 2019.
Warburton, who scored 27 goals and was voted Stockport's player of the season as County won the National League North title in 2018/19, was attracting interest from a number of clubs in the EFL, but the Cobblers won the race for his signature. He joined Stockport County in May 2017 after netting 13 goals in 16 appearances for Curzon Ashton after a spell with Salford City. In two seasons, Warburton, who can also play in the number ten role, scored 48 goals for County, including finding the net in the 3-1 Emirates FA Cup win at Yeovil Town in November 2018 which was one of forty goals during the calendar year.
