Club saddened to learn of passing of former loan player

Northampton Town Football Club are deeply saddened by the news that Mitchell Cole has passed away at the age of just 27 after suffering a heart attack.

Winger Cole had a loan spell at Sixfields under John Gorman back in 2006, making 8 appearances and scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win at Millwall.

Cole's career ended prematurely in February 2011 when he was forced into early retirement due to a serious heart condition.

The midfielder also played for Grays Athletic, Southend, Stevenage and Oxford United.

We would like to pass on our condolences to Mitchell's friends and family at this very sad time.
