Where It All Really Started

Old or young, we all agree that Northampton Town is really where it all started, Ivan.

Bradford 1-1 Northampton Town

It’s difficult to talk about the game at Valley Parade on Saturday without mentioning the performance of the referee. It’s possibly the worst official we’ve had this season and it really wound Charles up.

Still, after losing Kion Etete to a swing of the arm that Quest’s TV pundit duo seem to think was nothing more than a natural movement, Mitch Pinnock sprinted the length of the pitch to open the scoring.

Unfortunately, a second individual error in consecutive games by a Cobblers centre back allowed Charles Vernon to equalise and Jon Brady’s side had to settle for a point.

Ivan Toney Forgets Where He’s From

As if we weren’t annoyed enough this weekend, Ivan Toney decided to forget all about his overhead kick at Dagenham and the time he spent at Sixfields as a youngster. In a Tweet posted after Brentford’s 3-3 draw at Newcastle United, where he scored, Toney said:

“Special moment today to return to where it all really started and see some old faces , even better to score but 3 points would of made it sweeter.”

Cheers Ivan. We miss you too.


Off the back of Richard Hamley’s email about his first game at the County Ground, Robert Salmons has been in touch with a real touch of kindness and class. Robert’s found the original match day programme from that game back in 1965/66. Thank you for your email Robert!

Tin Pot Clubs

On the Fan Club Slack this week, Gareth posed a fun question – What makes a club tinpot? Needless to say, if your an MK fan you probably shouldn’t listen ;-p

NTFC Women

No game for the Women’s team this weekend but this coming Sunday, the Cobblers travel to Stourbridge to take on Lye Town Ladies in the 2nd round of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup.

Good luck to the whole team and our sponsored player, Abbie Brewin.
