Squad did club proud in regional event
On Saturday, Disability and Inclusion officer Russell Lewis took a group of Walking Football players to represent Northampton Town in the Football League Regional Finals.
Teams taking part included Luton, Wycombe, Charlton, Reading, Crawley, Stevenage, Barnet, Peterborough, Leyton Orient, Wimbledon, Southend and Colchester
The teams were split into three leagues with the winners playing each other in the finals with the eventual winners representing the region in the national finals at St Georges Park.
Northampton started with a narrow 1-0 defeat against Crawley, then followed a draw against Charlton and a win against Wycombe before a defeat against Colchester meant that we played Luton Town in the fourth place play off.
All the players enjoyed the day and many thanks to Northampton Town for supplying them with a Cobblers kit for the day.
