Football League Youth Alliance action
Northampton Town’s youth team travelled to Portsmouth on Saturday for their penultimate fixture of the season in the Football League Youth Alliance.
A very young Cobblers side were beaten 1-0 but coach Craig Hinton was encouraged by his side’s second half performance.
“We had a very inexperienced side but they did really well in the second half,” he said.
“The first half was disappointing but I was really encouraged and pleased with the way the lads performed after the break.”
