SOHAM Town Rangers have announced the capture of winger Shawn Richards from Northampton Town.

Richards, who signed for the club yesterday (January 22), has played for both the Cobblers' youth and reserve teams this season and as well as playing wide-right can also play in an attacking role.

Greens' boss Ian Benjamin said, "We had a recommendation about this lad from the Northampton youth set-up and as a natural winger with some good attacking pace he was just what we were after.

"I think we needed a fully fit player who has played at a good level to come in and freshen us up a bit, but that said we do have Will Seymour who we rate very highly and who is very much in my plans also."

Soham also made a seven-day approach for Walsham-le-Willows starlet Nathan Clarke this week, but the 19 year-old defender opted to stay with the Ridgeons Premier League outfit for the remainder of the season.
