Northampton Town have signed striker Jake Robinson after he was released by Shrewsbury Town.The 24-year-old, who moved to Shropshire from Brighton in July 2009, ended the season on loan at Torquay. [LNB]"He is a fantastic signing for this football club," boss Gary Johnson told the club website. [LNB]"He can play anywhere across the front four, he is full of pace and he is just the sort of quality player we are always looking to bring to the club." [LNB]Robinson hit nine goals for Shrewsbury in 2010/11, including a brace against Northampton in the 3-1 win in September, and found the net a further seven times during a 22-game loan spell with Torquay in the second half of the campaign. [LNB]The former Brighton frontman told his followers on Twitter he only found out from the Shrewsbury website that he was not being offered a new contract. [LNB]In what has already been a busy summer for the Cobblers, with 10 players leaving Sixfields, Robinson joins Adebayo Akinfenwa, Seth Nana Ofori-Twumasi and Byron Webster in signing for Johnson's new-look Northampton team for the 2011/12 campaign.
