Stevenage have completed the signing of Dean Bowditch on loan from Northampton Town.

The experienced striker will remain at the Lamex until the end of the season and will link up with former team mate Alex Revell – who joined Boro from Northampton yesterday.

Bowditch started his career at Ipswich Town and made his first-team debut as a 16-year-old, playing 82 times for the Tractor Boys in his seven-year spell at the club.

He made a number of loan moves during his time at Portman Road, including two spells at Brighton and Hove Albion before a permanent transfer to Yeovil Town.

Bowditch’s had a successful two seasons at Huish Park – scoring 25 goals in 71 games – before joining Milton Keynes Dons, where he became a fan favourite and helped the club win promotion to the Championship in 2014/15.

The 31-year-old joined Northampton last summer but failed to score in his 11 League One appearances for the Cobblers.

The striker becomes Darren Sarll’s sixth January signing following the arrival of Revell, John Goddard, Tom King, Ben Sheaf and Luke Amos.
