Doncaster Rovers centre back Byron Webster has signed a loan deal with the Cobblers that keeps him at Sixfields until the end of the season. Described as a “ball winner and a leader” by Gary Johnson, he goes straight into the squad for the trip to Bradford at the weekend.]
Webster, 23, began his career at York City, making his debut in the Conference at the end of 2004. Just a few days later, he scored his first goal for the club in a 2-2 draw against Stevenage Borough and went on to make sixteen appearances that season. Signing professional terms in 2006, Webster left the club less than a year later and joined Harrogate Town.
He signed a one year deal with Czech side FK SIAD Most in August 2007 but his new side were relegated at the end of that season. After brief spells on loans and trials with Motherwell and Bury Webster eventually signed for Doncaster after impressing in pre-season 2009. He has made seven appearances in the Championship this season but with a contract that runs out this summer he could be one that Johnson looks at with a view to a permanent deal.
So another one in and the likelihood is that we’ll again be a changed side against Bradford with the Cobblers boss stating that he will play some part in the game.
