Justin Edinburgh is looking forward to seeing a good turn out of Cobblers fans at Sileby Rangers on Saturday (3pm) for the opening pre-season friendly.
“It’s a chance for the fans to see some of the new signings and I'm sure there will be a decent turn out," he said.
“There is always that buzz to see new players and the group back together. It’s been a long time since our last game and I think everybody is craving it. We will play some of the younger players as well on Saturday and it’s a good opportunity to see where they are at.
“It’s an excellent pitch at Sileby, we played some reserve games there last year and we are all really looking forward to Saturday.
“I feel that there is a different dynamic within the group already this season and there is a totally different vibe around the place.
“Standards are high and I’m really excited to see the players on Saturday and then the week away in Spain. It’s going to be a hard week but it’s a chance for everybody to really get to know each other and form a bond.”
