Players attend Eastfield Primary School

The Cobblers recently took over Eastfield Primary School for the day; helping pupils not only succeed on the pitch, but also in the classroom.

Representatives from the first team squad, plus club mascot Clarence the Dragon, taught pupils some basic footballing skills before using football analogies to help them master some maths problems back in the school.   

Chris Hill, Headteacher, said: “It was great having Northampton Town at Eastfields for the day. Every child learns in a different way, so if we can use football to help a child better understand subjects like maths or English then that can only be a good thing.”

Pupils from the primary school, which will shortly become part of the David Ross Education Trust, also attended the Cobblers game against Exeter as VIP guests. As part of their day, pupils got to do their very own lap of honour at half time.

Sam Haase from Northampton Town said: “It was great to spend the day at Eastfield Primary School.  It is a really friendly place, and the children there are brilliant. In fact, we hope to see some of them back at Sixfields soon!”
