>Just when we thought it was all over, a bolt from the blue yesterday saw Shaun Harrad put pen to paper on a two and a half year deal at Sixfields!
Harrad, 26, has netted 13 times already this season including a hat-trick against Rotherham. That followed a season of 21 goals last season and it’s clear that we have a real threat on our hands.
The signing that can take us to a new level added to that of Francis Laurent and the tieing down of Michael Jacobs to a new deal makes this one of the best transfer windows in recent years.
The disappointment on the break down in the deal for Calvin Zola is now a distant memory and those who doubted the ambition of the chairman and manager before have been answered. Though one signing doesn’t make a season, this one will create a buzz around Sixfields starting with tomorrows visit of Oxford United.
Sammo has his man!
