Pen Pic

When Colin Larkin was released by relegated Northampton Town at the end of the 2008/09 season Chris Turner moved quickly to snap up the striker.

The Irish forward who can be utilised on both wings began his career with Turner at Wolverhampton Wanderers. He was sent out on loan to Kidderminster Harriers in 2001 where he hit the net on six occasions.

Mansfield Town forked out 125,000 for Larkin in 2002 where he scored 25 goals in in just over 92 appearances. He then spent two years at Chesterfield in which he hit 13 goals before a spell at Northampton Town.

He struggled to break into the first team under Chris Turner, often being used as a late substitute against tiring opposition defence, and grabbed his first goal with a neat chip against Walsall in September 2010.

That goal sparked a long-running barren spell for the striker as he went nearly 50 appearances before finding the net again, that goal finally coming in a 5-2 defeat at Walsall in March 2011.

Continuing to be used as a utility player, manager Mick Wadsworth extended his contract at the club for a further year in the summer of 2011 but Larkin spent much of the following campaign injured, leaving the club in May 2012.
