Hylton and Haynes joined Cobblers in the summer of 2022 and were part of last year’s promotion-winning squad but neither have featured much this season, making just nine appearances between them. Moore and Gape played eight and two times respectively after joining in February but ended the season out of the squad. Abimbola has consistently struggled for game-time after coming through the academy.
