Northampton award pro contract to keeper Dean Snedker

Northampton Town have awarded a first professional contract to teenage goalkeeper Dean Snedker.

The 17-year-old has committed to stay at Sixfields until 2015.

Snedker came through the club's youth system and made his debut in the 2-1 Capital One Cup win over Cardiff City.

He also appeared in Thursday's 3-1 second-round defeat by Wolves when Cobblers manager Aidy Boothroyd said: "We've got a young boy in goal and he'll get better and better."
