Good luck & thanks Rico...makes total sense and he should never have been given an extension into this season...

Will get a L2 club soon enough i reckon...

Consistently the best centre forward I have seen at the Cobblers since my first game in 2000. Top quality player and always seemed like a good pro too.

Very sorry to see him leave.

If Wikipedia is to believed he made 192 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring 63 times. A ratio of almost exactly 1 goal every 3 games.

Shame we couldn't have had him for the entirety of his career! I think his next move will be the first time he's been lower than Cobblers in the league.

Wish him well going forward. Just a shame we couldn't have kept him until Oxford....

Would say he is a proper town legend.. Sad to see him go but I think the time is right. Someone lower down will snap him up for sure.

Wish him all the best

Served the club well, but should have left in the summer.

A fantastic player and a superb ambassador for the club, not least in captaining us to success through our financial problems and on to title glory a couple of years back.

In many ways I'm sad to see him go, but equally he probably should have been released last year and left on a high, rather than have our last memories of him in a Cobblers shirt being of him labouring a little this season. Still, whatever, easy to say with hindsight - he'll always be remembered as a Cobblers legend.

Good luck Rico, a proper club legend.

Shouldn't of come down to this, we should have got him into a coaching role in the summer or allowed him to move on then.

Either way a great servant to the club and will always be remembered fondly.

I wasn't convinced at first about him coming back for a second stint. In fact, some friends of mine often remind me of quote i made about him only scoring against lower teams in L2. I was actually accurate in the quote during the promotion season as he only scored against teams below us.

Some superb memories though such as the Oxford winners and 4 goals at Macclesfield. However as much as everyone mentions that goal at Hull; this moment was bittersweet for me as my over enthusiastic goal celebration ended up with me being kicked out the ground after 3 minutes.

Coincidentally for the best part of that season all of our scorers scored against teams below

If he's going to play elsewhere at a lower level, all the best to him. If not and we haven't tried to retain him in some coaching or ambassadorial job then its a shame.

Been a great player for our club over the years and deservedly got a league championship on his cv with us for his efforts.
All good things come to an end but I think looking back he probably deserves legendary status.

As jimmy says he’s welcome back anytime and he will surely get a decent reception.
I just hope we don’t have to face him anytime soon...,
You just know the script!!
Farewell and good luck rico
You’re a good un

Still fit and sharp enough to do a job for a L2 team. Right decision by all. Hope he scores a few for his new team and go on to coach/manage one day.
