Sam Hoskins is desperate to show the Cobblers supporters what he can do after penning a contract at the club.
The 22-year-old enjoyed a successful trial spell at Sixfields and was handed a one-year deal by manager Chris Wilder.
But now Hoskins, who scored in pre-season wins at Sileby Rangers and Worthing, knows he must impress the Town faitful.
He said: “It’s a good club and I wanted to prove to the manager what I can do.
“It’s good to get signed and now I want to show the fans what I’m all about.
“We’ve got a really strong group of lads and this season will be a good one if we can play how we’ve proven in pre-season.”
Hoskins is capable of playing up front or in behind in Cobblers’ current 4-2-3-1 formation.
And he has relished playing alongside the likes of fellow creators Nicky Adams and Lawson D’Ath.
“All of us attacking players are building up an understanding of each other,” he said.
“It’s good to get a few games under my belt with them so that when the season does start we know what each other can do.”
