Duo to leave Town
Northampton Town will release veteran defender Andy Holt and goalkeeper Freddy Hall in the summer as they continue a player clearout.
Holt, 34, will end a six-year association with the Cobblers, in which he has made 220 appearances and also had a spell as player-coach, when his contract expires in June. Meanwhile, Bermudan Hall, 27, has featured just three times since arriving from the USA minor leagues last year, and both leave with manager Aidy Boothroyd's best wishes. "It is always difficult to see a player leave who has done so well for the club over many years," said boss Boothroyd of Holt: "It is even harder when they are as a good a character as Andy is but things move on and decisions have to be made, Freddy also goes with our thanks and best wishes and we hope that he too can get himself fixed up elsewhere." The pair join Ryan Gilligan, Jason Crowe, Nathan Wedderburn, Lewis Young and Michael Built in leaving the Sixfields at the end of the season.
