Last updated : 06 January 2010 By BBC Sport

Northampton Town have signed central defender Luke Wilkinson and striker Stephen O'Flynn to bolster their squad.Wilkinson, 19, joins on a month's loan from Portsmouth, while O'Flynn, 27, moves from Limerick, where he was out of contract, until the summer.

"Luke is a good young player who's here to increase the competition," said Cobblers manager Ian Sampson.

"He's a confident lad, a good defender and has been training with us so I think he will fit in well."

Sampson added: "Stephen spent a couple of weeks with us just before Christmas and we've moved quickly to get him in as soon as we could.

"He has a real hunger to do well and to grab this opportunity we've offered him."

O'Flynn has also played for Derry City and scored their winner against IFK Goteborg in the Uefa Cup in 2006.
