Former Oxford United winger joins Cobblers

Chris Hackett in his Oxford days

Chris Hackett in his Oxford days

First published in United News

Former Oxford United winger Chris Hackett has joined fellow npower League Two rivals Northampton Town.

The 29-year-old signed a two-year deal with the Cobblers, who are looking to strengthen after selling Michael Jacobs to Derby County last month.

Hackett began his career with the U’s, making 142 appearances in all before leaving for Hearts in January 2006.

He had spells on loan at Exeter and Wycombe Wanderers last season before being released by parent club Millwall in May.

Meanwhile, United hold their AGM at the Kassam Stadium today (July 4) where the club’s chiefs are likely to be questioned by shareholders about the ground-share with Aviva Premiership new boys London Welsh.

The U’s have yet to give an official response in the wake of the Exiles’ successful appeal on Friday, which confirmed their place in the top flight next season.
