Lobjoit played youth football with Milton Keynes Dons and Coventry City before non-league spells with Hemel Hempstead Town, New Bradwell St Peter, Leighton Town, Arlesey Town and Buckingham Town. After scoring over 60 goals for Buckingham last season, the 23-year-old signed a two year professional contract with Northampton Town in March, 2017.

He has had loan spells with Corby Town and Nuneaton Town this season and joins the Puritans on-loan until the end of the season.

Lobjoit will be available for today’s Evo-Stik Southern League clash with Gosport at the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium.
