Forward joins the ranks on short-term loanExeter City have today signed Alex Nicholls on a short-term loan from Northampton Town.
The 26-year-old forward joined the Cobblers from Walsall in 2012, and was in a rich vein of goalscoring form at Sixfields before an unfortunate leg-break against Port Vale.
After a long period of rehabilitation and a full pre-season ahead of 2014/15, Nicholls made a return to competitive action recently as Northampton visited AFC Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup.
Alex will be eligible to turn out for the Grecians for the first time this coming weekend as Mansfield Town visit St James Park on Saturday.
Nicholls will wear the number 23 shirt for Exeter City. We wish Alex the very best of luck for his time with us at St James Park.
