Brackley Town boss Jon Brady has snapped up Dean Snedker as he looks to make sure his side stay clear of the Vanarama Conference North relegation zone.
The young keeper, who spent time on-loan at St James Park earlier in the season, was released by Northampton Town on Tuesday and Brady moved quickly to sign him on a permanent basis.
Brady said: “Dean did very well when he was with us earlier and with the March deadline coming up we needed to get some cover.
“Billy Turley cannot play every week with his back problems. He came out of retirement to help us out and has been fantastic for us, Dan Farrell has done very well when he’s come in but he’s still very young.”
