Diamonds bring in two

AFC Rushden & Diamonds strengthen squad

BetVictor Southern League Premier Division Central club AFC Rushden & Diamonds have brought in two players on an initial month`s loan from SkyBet League Two neighbours Northampton Town.

Defender Ryan Hughes and midfielder Morgan Roberts are both 18-year-olds, and are part of the Cobblers’ first-team squad, having come through their academy. Hughes, who hails from Kettering, joined the Cobblers as a 10-year-old in 2011 and has progressed through the age groups. He spent a spell on `work experience` at St Neots Town in the 2018/19 season and made his first-team debut at Cheltenham Town in March 2019.

Roberts made his Cobblers’ League bow in 2018 against Oldham and was on the bench at Sixfields in the most recent home league game, and he made a sub appearance in their midweek EFL Trophy game at Cambridge United.
