A SPATE of in­juries at right-back has led Northamp­ton Town to sign Neal Eardley from Hiber­nian, with the Welsh in­ter­na­tional ex­cited by his new chal­lenge.

Eardley, 28, has won 16 caps for Wales and made more than 100 ap­pear­ances for both Old­ham Ath­letic and Black­pool be­fore spend­ing three years at Birm­ing­ham City.

“I got a call over the week­end say­ing there was an op­por­tu­nity for me to train and I played in a be­hind-closed-doors game on Tues­day and that went well,” he said.

“We man­aged to get things done and I’m here now. I’m re­ally pleased.”
