Northampton Town release forward Roy O'Donovan

Roy O'Donovan

Northampton Town have terminated the contract of striker Roy O'Donovan by mutual consent.

The 28-year-old scored twice in his first three games this term but has not been in target since.

Irishman O'Donovan, a signing in January last year, has played just once in 2014 and held talks with Singapore League club Brunei DPMM last month.

Meanwhile, defender James Hurst, 22, has returned to Crawley a few days before his loan spell was due to end.
