Experienced hot-shot Steve Guinan has switched from Hereford to Northampton on a two-year deal.
Both teams were relegated from League One last term and the 33-year-old has made his move after rejecting a player/coach contract at Edgar Street.
He was out of contract with the Bulls this summer and was snapped up by the Cobblers after scoring 15 goals last season.
He will officially become a Cobblers player on 1st July and boss Stuart Gray is delighted to have secured the services of such an experienced player to help fire them back to League One.
"I am sure Steve will score goals for us. He has a lot of experience and that is vital," said Gray.
"Steve is a student of the game who has his coaching qualifications and he is a very intelligent player who can pass on his knowledge to the younger lads.
"A few times last season we fell flat but he can be a leader and he can organise and he has won promotion from this level on more than one occasion so he knows what is required.
"He scored 15 goals last season in League One in a relegated side and he was their player of the year, so he comes with a decent record.
"We need plenty of talkers out on the field and Steve will be one of those."
