Football League Youth Alliance action
Northampton Town's youth team took on Luton Town at Moulton College in the Football League Youth Alliance on Saturday.
The Cobblers were beaten 2-1 with Luton steeling the win with a goal in stoppage time.
"We were a bit unlucky not to take anything from the game," said under 18s coach Craig Hinton.
"It was a good first half performance and for the effort the lads put in they deserved something from the game."
Connor Roberts scored the Cobblers goal.
Next up for the under 18s is an FA Youth Cup first round tie at Ilkeston on Wednesday (6 November), kick-off 7.45pm.
