Lawson D'Ath




Date of birth






Lawson D’Ath, a 21-year-old Oxfordshire-born midfielder who came through the Royals ranks with a prolific goal scoring record at Academy level.

His one and only Reading appearance came at Madejski Stadium in our FA Cup defeat to Stevenage, coming off the bench for Brian McDermott to replace Shaun Cummings late in the tie.

Since making his bow, he has gone out on loan to Exeter City, Cheltenham Town, Yeovil Town and Dagenham and Redbridge where he spent the majority of the 2013/14 campaign.

The playmaker only scored one goal for the Daggers, a spectacular effort in a 1-1 draw at Burton that February.

In May 2014, D’Ath was released by the Royals, having trials with Bristol Rovers before joining League Two side Northampton Town.

So far, the midfielder has relished in his first season with the Cobblers notching eight times in 36 appearances.

A brace of those goals came on his debut – a Capital One Cup match against Wolves, where D’Ath’s goals led the way to a 3-2 victory at Molineux.
