Yeovil Town are delighted to confirm the loan signing of Matt Warburton on loan from Northampton Town until the end of the season.

Having already scored twice for the Cobblers this season, the 28-year old now ventures to Somerset, looking for a consistent run of first team football.

The attacker is no stranger to the non-league circuit, playing for Curzon Ashton, Salford City and Stockport County in the National League North.

The 2018-19 season saw Warburton secure promotion to the National League with Stockport County as the Hatters won the National League North. Warburton netted 18 league goals in the process, and hit 25 in all competitions, averaging just shy of a goal every other game.

However, he would not stay in Stockport to enjoy National League football, stepping up to the EFL for the first time in his career signing for Northampton Town. His time in Northampton saw Warburton win the League Two play-offs, beating Exeter City in the final.

Speaking to the Yeovil Town media team after signing, Warburton said; “I’m excited to be here, it’s a great footballing club and once I knew there was interest from the manager, he sold the club to me and I want to be a part of it and get this team promoted.

“I don’t know too much, but everybody I’ve spoken to has said it’s a well ran club and positive about the style they play. It’s a great opportunity for me.”

Everybody at Yeovil Town wishes Matt all the best during his stay in Somerset.
