The group stage of the Checkatrade Trophy came to a conclusion at the PTS Academy Stadium on Tuesday night with the Cobblers knowing a win by two or more goals over Fulham under 21s would guarantee them a place in the knockout stages.

Aaron Pierre almost added to his recent goal tally early on, heading narrowly over from a David Buchanan corner. Jordan Turnbull also saw a shot blocked at close range as the Cobblers looked to make the breakthrough which came on 16 minutes, Aaron Pierre scoring with a powerful header from a Hakeem Odoffin free-kick.

Sam Hoskins quickly doubled the lead, firing a shot past Taye Ashby-Hammond. The Cobblers were looking dangerous with every attack and Billy Waters whipped a shot just wide after a neat interchange with Hoskins. Fulham U21s had one or two half chances but failed to test Lewis Ward in a fairly one-sided first half.

Camron McWilliams came on for the second half, replacing Pierre to make his professional debut. The flow of the game remained the same and a terrific half-volley from Hoskins whistled just wide from 35-yards.

A rising shot from Cameron Thompson was comfortably saved by Ward before Joe Iaciofano came on for Andy Williams. Fulham were starting to pose more of a threat and it needed a good save from Ward to deny Jaydn Mundle-Smith. Shaun McWilliams made way for Sean Whaler in the Cobblers final change as they booked their place in the second round as group runners up.

Arrangements for Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy tie with Fulham under 21s

6 November 2018

Northampton Town welcome Fulham under 21s to the PTS Academy Stadium in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday evening (kick off 7.45pm).

The West Stand and Moulton College Stands are open for this game and ticket prices have been reduced to just £5 for adults and senior citizens and £1 for under 18s.

Tickets can be purchased ahead of arrival via ntfcdirect.co.uk.

Please visit the main ticket office if you are looking to purchase tickets on arrival.

If collecting pre-ordered match tickets, please visit the ticket point opposite the main entrance.

Please note that tickets for forthcoming home and away games are on sale, but for the hour before kick off the ticket office will be selling Fulham match tickets only.

As part of increased security measures, a 100% search policy will be in operation. Because of this, supporters are advised to arrive as early as possible. Turnstiles will be open from 6.30pm.


Northampton Town have been working closely with the police and the EFL to review security. Now we are asking you to do your bit.
It is vital that everyone - players, staff and supporters - remain vigilant and report any concerns to stewards or police.

Attacks might be rare, and the chance of you being caught up in one unlikely, but the message is #ActionCountersTerrorism.

Here's a quick reminder of what you can do to help keep yourself and others safe:
• Arrive early, allowing more time for security checks 
• Minimise what you carry, fewer bag searches will speed up entry to the ground 
• Be vigilant at all times and if you see anything suspicious, tell a steward right away 
• If you see anything that could pose an immediate threat to safety, call 999 
• In an emergency, listen to the Public Address instructions and follow them 
• If told to evacuate, do so immediately, do not wait around to film events on your mobile 
• Move right away from the stadium as quickly as possible for your safety and to allow clear access for any emergency vehicles 
• Once you are safe, follow Northamptonshire Police on Twitter for updates

POLITE NOTICE: Supporters are reminded that only food and drink purchased within the stadium should be consumed on the stadium premises please. Thank you.
