Corby Town have signed young defender Aynsley McDonald on a one-year deal following his release from Rushden.
McDonald, a former Wales Under-17 international, experienced loan spells at AFC Sudbury and Banbury last season.
The 17-year-old's only Diamonds appearance came against Wrexham in April 2010.
"He is another six-foot-plus defender and can play on either foot so he's comfortable in either full-back position," said boss Graham Drury.
"Aynsley did well in his loan spell at Banbury last season but when he went back he became a bit disillusioned at Diamonds because of a lack of first team opportunities.
"We're hoping he can come in and do well for himself and we can get a smile back on his face."
