Northampton Town have announced the signing of Peterborough United midfielder Harry Beautyman on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-yea-rold started off his career with Leyton Orient and joined Peterborough United in November 2014 where he has made 45 League One appearances, scoring five goals.

Harry is a very good addition for us. He is a lively character and a player who has a decent amount of experience in League One. He is also a good age, who will get better and better, and I think we are signing him at a good time.

He is a box to box midfielder who creates things, makes things happen and can score a goal or two so he will add to our attacking options.

– Rob Page, Northampton Town manager
