26 April 2017

Public game to be played on Friday July 14th

Northampton Town will spend a week in Spain in July as the squad prepare for the 2017/18 season.

The Cobblers will fly to Alicante before transferring to their training camp on Sunday July 9th, and will return to England on Saturday July 15th.

During the week in Spain, there will be an open training session, a BBQ giving supporters the opportunity to meet the players and a match that will be played on Friday July 14th.

The opponents and kick off time of the match is yet to be confirmed, but the match will be played at the Oliva Nova complex which is around 100km north of Alicante Airport.

"Now that we have secured League One football for next season it is a good time starting to think about the preparation for that campaign," said manager Justin Edinburgh.

"We are putting plans together for pre-season and we want to give any supporters interested in travelling over to Spain as much notice of our plans as possible, which is why we are announcing the initial details and the confirmed date of the game now.

"The facilities over there are first class, they will provide an excellent base for us for a week and we hope that any supporters who travel will appreciate the chance to enjoy some football and meet the players in the Spanish sunshine."

Details of other pre-season games and further details on this trip will be announced in due course, with the Cobblers also set to travel to Kettering Town for the Maunsell Cup Final on Saturday July 22nd.
