Players undertook a series of driving challenges at Sixfields
To celebrate a brand new partnership between Stagecoach and Northampton Town Football Club, a number of Northampton Town players undertook a series of special driving challenges at Sixfields on Thursday.
Stagecoach sponsored Lawson D'Ath and Matt Duke, Zander Diamond and Chris Hackett took on the challenges under the guidance of Stagecoach instructors at the beginning of a partnership that will see Stagecoach be match sponsors for Northampton Town's game with Morecambe at Sixfields on Saturday as the Cobblers look to secure a fifth successive victory.
The Stagecoach Route 15 Driving Challenge was held to mark the beginning of a new route 15 which will make it easier for supporters to get to Sixfields on a matchday. Route 15 will start on the 13th April running between Acre Lane, Kingsthorpe, Harborough Rd, town centre, Upton, Sixfields and St Crispins. The service will run every 20 minutes and will effectively combine the current 15 and 22 routes. This new cross town link is being introduced with partial, section 106 developer funding from Northampton Borough Council.
In addition, Stagecoach route 5 runs from Southfields and Weston Favell via the town centre and on to Sixfields while routes D1/D2/D3 come in from Daventry and Flore to Sixfields.
A new promotion has been introduced as part of the partnership, whereby season ticket holders are able to travel for £1 single to Sixfields on match days from anywhere within the Northampton Megarider Zone. This offer will commence from the Northampton Town v Morecambe match on Saturday.
