Northampton Town have signed Northern Ireland international Ryan McGivern on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old defender has agreed an initial short-term deal that will run until January 2018.

McGivern, who has been training with the Cobblers for the past few weeks, started his career at Manchester City and has recently played for the likes of Hibernian and Shrewsbury Town.

"Ryan has been training with us for a few weeks and has done well," said manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

"I feel we need to strengthen the squad in the central defensive areas and he will come in to do that.

"Ryan coming in provides that and with him having been on the training ground with us for a while we have had the chance to have a look at him and he has already fitted in well with the group."

McGugan has been training with the Cobblers for the past few weeks and has impressed manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

"He is an attacking, creative player who can make chances for others and he offers a goal threat from midfield, which is important for us," Hasselbaink said.

"Lewis has an excellent pedigree from a higher level and he is a good age with a fair amount of experience.

"He will be added to the squad for the Checkatrade Trophy game at Peterborough United on Tuesday."

Hasselbaink keen to bring stability to Northampton Town

Northampton Town have unveiled the new man charged with turning around their fortunes after their terrible start to League One.

As a player, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was a goalscoring superstar for the likes of Chelsea, Leeds United and Middlesbrough.

Later, he became a sought-after manager following his exploits with one of the league's smaller clubs, Burton Albion.

Today, the Dutchman is the third boss to be taken on by the Cobblers since their promotion two seasons ago

Northampton Town have announced they have parted company with manager Justin Edinburgh.

In a statement on the club's website Chairman Kelvin Thomas said:

“Justin did a good job for us in difficult circumstances and achieved what was asked of him when he came in last season by retaining our League 1 status, for which we will always be grateful.

“However results overall haven’t gone as well as any of us would have liked, but Justin is an honest and hard working individual and we wish him well for the future."

Edinburgh won just six of his 26 games in charge of the Cobblers, drawing six games and losing 14. He only joined the club in January, taking over from Robert Page.

Northampton are currently bottom of League One and have lost all their matches in the league so far.
