Northampton Town have confirmed a deal to sign winger Mitch Pinnock from Scottish side Kilmarnock.

The 26-year-old has signed a two year contract with the Cobblers, and will arrive on July 1st upon expiry of his contract in Scotland.

He is the second player to sign for Northampton Town ahead of the 2021-22 season. He’s also the second to move from Kilmarnock, after striker Nicke Kabamba moved from Rugby Park to Sixfields earlier this month.

Pinnock began his career with Southend United but had his first sustained role playing for non-league Dover Athletic after joining for a second time in 2016. He then made a move to AFC Wimbledon before joining Kilmarnock in 2020. He scored five times in 37 games for the Scottish side last season.

The Cobblers’ manager Jon Brady told the club’s official website that he felt they had pulled off a good signing. He said, “We feel Mitch is a good signing for us.

“He is a player who we have done our homework on, we have watched him very closely and we have been very impressed with what we have seen. He also comes very highly recommended from a number of different sources and that is important to us.

“Mitch has a lot of the attributes we are looking for in our attacking players. He is strong, powerful and mobile and he provides a good delivery from out wide, creating opportunities for others as well as being a goal threat himself.

“He has a decent amount of experience and a good pedigree in both England and Scotland – he has played nearly 200 games in his career and he is an excellent age. We have had some really productive conversations with him about what we are looking for and what Mitch can bring and we believe he will fit in well.
