After initially joining the Club on a month's long loan from League Two side Mansfield Town, Rushden & Diamonds have today signed forward Chris Beardsley on an 18-month deal.

After a lengthy recovery period following a broken leg in August 2005, Chris returned to action for Mansfield ready for the start of the 2006-07 season. However, after making only five starts and eight substitute appearances for the Stags, Beardsley was made available for loan and Graham Westley was soon to secure his services, bolstering his strike force.

Since joining the Diamonds on loan in the middle of January, the 22-year old has helped the Club to climb the table with two goals in three games, coming against Cambridge and Oxford respectively.

Diamonds Manager, Graham Westley, moved quickly to secure the services of Beardsley on an 18-month deal before the Transfer Window closed. Chris will prove to be a valuable addition to the squad as he battles back to full match fitness.

Eligible for selection in the FA Trophy, Beardsley will be looking to secure a place in the side as the Club looks to enjoy a successful second half of the season.
