Goalkeeper signs for new club after being released by Cobblers
Jonny Maxted has joined League Two side Newport County on a permanent basis following a successful trial at the club.
A two-time promotion-winner, Maxted will replace Newport’s long-standing goalkeeper Joe Day after his loan move to Woking. He’ll compete with Nick Townsend for the gloves.
“Jonny came in a month ago and played for us in our friendly fixture against Pontypridd,” said Exiles boss Graham Coughlan. “Jonny has also been training with us and has fit in really well.
“He’s an experienced goalkeeper and has been in successful changing rooms, such as recently promoted Northampton Town. Jonny will challenge Nick for the number one jersey in the upcoming season.”
Maxted added: “I’m buzzing to get into the new season. The boys have been great with me, so I’ll fit in right away and I’m looking forward to hit the ground running.”
