Northampton goalkeeper Jonny Maxted looking forward to battle with Liam Roberts
New Northampton goalkeeper Jonny Maxted is relishing the prospect of competing with Liam Roberts for the number one shirt.
Maxted has signed a one-year deal with the Cobblers which will come into effect when his contract comes to an end at Exeter on July 1.
The 27-year-old told the club’s website: “As a goalkeeper you want that competition, you want to be challenged in training and I think it will be a good battle for both of us.
“It’s good to have the deal done before pre-season starts and I can get to know all the lads straight away.
“I think this pre-season will be the best I’ve had fitness-wise and I can’t wait to get cracking.”
