What’s this? A former Posh man coming through the door of Sixfields? Why, yes, it’s Leon McKenzie, signed this morning to hopefully fill a void up front. The former Boro and Norwich man, 32, has put pen to paper on a contract until the end of the season having been released by Charlton Athletic at the end of last season.
He’s been training with the club this week and Sammo has seen enough to convince himself that he is a short term answer to the current hole in the attack.
McKenzie will be forgiven for his former misdemeanours down the road should he fire the Cobblers up the League Two table and it’s a decent shout by the Town boss in terms of goal scoring ability at this level, with a tally of 49 goals in 103 games for the Posh.
It’ll be interesting to see how he fits in at Sixfields and gets an early chance to impress the home fans this Saturday against Southend.
