Northampton Town Football Club will be staging a Family Fun Day at Sixfields on Saturday (July 23rd) where the 2016/17 Nike home kit will be revealed for the very first time.
The fun will get under way at 10am and as well as the first look at the new home kit, supporters can also enjoy an open training session from 1030am as manager Rob Page and his staff put the first team squad through their paces.
But, Cobblers fans won't just be watching the action, they will be encouraged to take part as well! Supporters will be invited to participate in a penalty shoot out on the pitch against the first team squad at 1115am, while all Gullivers Junior Cobblers members* will be welcomed on to the pitch to play in a special match against the first team, that game is scheduled to kick off at 11.30am!
''We are looking forward to what should be a really fun day.'' Said Chairman Kelvin Thomas.
"The emphasis will be on fun for the whole family, and we want to welcome all supporters, new and old, down to enjoy a fun day at the club.
“There will be face painting for the children and we will have plenty of events taking place around the stadium.
"There will be lots of interaction between supporters and the players, we will all be joining together to create a huge team photo as part of the day, and there will be plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved.
"We expect this day will prove really popular and we look forward to what should be a very special event."
Initially the new Nike home kit was also due to be available for sale on the day, but due to an unforeseen delay in the supply chain, delivery of the kit will be delayed until 5th August. Although it will be available for pre-order from Saturday.
The League 2 trophy will be on show in the Grosvenor 1897 Suite for supporters to have their picture taken, while the players will also be meeting supporters and will be available for photos and autographs from 12.30pm.
There will also be plenty of Stalls and fun activities for all the family taking place through the day and admission is FREE!
