CHAIRMAN PROUD OF COMMUNITY EVENTS STAGED OVER THE BANK HOLIDAY

Kelvin Thomas speaks of pride after attending community events

30 May 2017

Chairman Kelvin Thomas has said the weekend of Bank Holiday community football hosted by the club at Sixfields made him 'very proud' to be the Northampton Town Chairman.

The Carlsberg Cup and Jewson Shield on Friday, the Cobblers Cup on Saturday and Sunday and the Multi-Disabled festival on Monday gave thousands of local footballers, young and old, the chance to play on the pitch at Sixfields, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

"We have just hosted a huge weekend of community football," he said in an interview that is now playing on iFollow and the club's YouTube channel.

"Hosting those events made me really proud to be the Chairman of Northampton Town Football Club. There were so many smiles, the events gave such a huge positive lift to those involved and there was a wonderful community feel to the weekend.

"From the Carlsberg Cup and Jewson Shield on Friday, the Cobblers Cup on Saturday and Sunday and the Multi-Disabled festival on Monday, it was wonderful to see thousands of amateur players, young and old, interacting with the club and having a great time. Most importantly of all, they were enjoying themselves.

"We must say a huge thank you to the helpers, volunteers, organisers, staff and stewards for putting such wonderful events on. This club does a huge amount for the local community, and we are very proud of what we do."

The events continue at Sixfields, with the women's team playing tonight and a Mental Health Football Festival taking place on Wednesday.
