Well well well, we wouldn’t have a complete Town Festival without the support of our local town football club would we? ‘course not! So here come The Cobblers supporting Northampton Town Festival in it’s pride!
Not quite up to the standards of Cobblers Stadium, but there will be a chance for you to have a go at a moment in the life of Ricky Holmes! We dare you to take a penalty in the inflatable goal!
“Northampton Town Football Club, your Sky Bet League 2 Champions, are #ProudToBe part of the Northampton Town Festival.
Last season was remarkable at Sixfields. After a dominant campaign that included 10 successive wins from December to February, the Cobblers were promoted to League 1 on April 9 after a 2-2 draw with Bristol Rovers at Sixfields. They secured the club’s first title for 29 years the following week, winning League 2 after a 0-0 draw at Exeter City. After ending the season with a joint club record 99 points, and on an unbeaten run of 24 matches without defeat, work is now well under way to prepare for the new season in League 1.
As the players continue their preparations for the 2016/17 season, come and join us and test your footballing skills in our inflatable goals, come and say hi to Clarence and maybe even have your photo taken with the League 2 trophy!
Come and pay us a visit and our staff will be pleased to help. We can also let you know that tickets for matches at Sixfields are free for under 7s!”
A little bit of history for you…
From 1897 to the present day
Northampton Town Football Club, nicknamed the Cobblers were founded on 6th March 1897, when a group of local school teachers got together with the well known local solicitor, AJ “Pat” Darnell in the Princess Royal Inn, Wellingborough Road, Northampton to form the Town’s first professional football club. Problems were encountered before a ball was kicked, when the Rugby club objected to the club name; Northampton Football Club. Arbitration was sought at the Football Association and the club were to be called Northampton Town Football Club.
So get yourself down for a kick around and feel the pride that is being a Cobbler! See you there!
