Young midfielder Scott Pollock has signed a new contract to stay with the Cobblers.

The 20-year-old, who emerged through the club's Football & Education programme, has put pen to paper on a new one-year-deal.

Pollock has made 23 first-team appearances since making his debut against Cambridge in January 2019, but he missed the entire 2020/21 season through injury.

However, manager Jon Brady, who worked with Pollock at youth level, is a big fan of the homegrown midfielder.

"I am delighted Scott has signed his new contract," said Brady.

"I worked with Scott in the U18s a couple of years ago and I know what a good player he can be.

"We missed him last season. His injury was a big blow to us but he returned to fitness just as the season ended and he is working hard this summer to hit the ground running in pre-season.

"He is a local lad and it is always very rewarding to see a player who has not just come through our academy but also our Football & Education programme sign a new contract. He has shown glimpses of his potential at first team level and the challenge for Scott now is to work hard and kick on and continue his route back to match fitness."
