Corby Town have completed the signing of former Northampton Town defender Andy Holt this evening.
Holt, who started his career with Oldham Athlectic, departed Sixfields at the end of the 2011/12 season. The utility man has impressed during pre-season with the Steelmen and has put pen to paper at Steel Park to re-unite with his former boss Ian Sampson.
Holt started his career at Oldham Athletic where he stayed for six years, playing 114 times and scoring 10 goals. Holt sufficiently impressed Hull City during a loan spell, who paid £150,000 to secure his services.
His career at Hull City was quite good to start; he played 30 times in his first season. However, the following year, he found himself surplus to requirements, first loaned out to Barnsley and then Shrewsbury Town. In the 2003–04 season, he sat on the bench mostly, only starting six of his 25 games that season. He found himself moving to Wrexham on a free transfer. At Wrexham, he played 86 matches, scoring on 10 occasions. At the end of his two-year contract, he got offered a deal by League One side Northampton Town, allowing him to prove himself in the next league up.
In his first season at Northampton, having been snapped up on a Bosman transfer by manager John Gorman, able to play in many positions he was used as a utility man, he played 37 games, none of them from the bench, and scored twice. Holt spent six years with the Cobblers.
