Cobblers boss says players can look forward to a lot of hard work

10 June 2018

Northampton Town manager Dean Austin says that the upcoming pre-season period will be a crucial time for the players ahead of the 2018/19 season.

"We are here for the first few weeks and then we get into the games and the tour to Spain (July 14th-20th) which will be a fantastic period for us," he said.

"It's important to get that time together as a group, to build team spirit and to work the players hard.

"We are hoping to have a game on the Tuesday night (July 17th) in Spain and we are in the process of trying to arrange that at the moment but if that doesn't happen then I will allow supporters into the camp to watch training for a day or two with an event on either July 17th or 18th.

"I'm very open with the supporters and the support the team got in the last few weeks of the season was fantastic.

"That was down to how the players reacted as well and I am very keen that we play our football in a certain way so that the supporters come to be entertained and they can see the focus and desire of the team.

"I want the fans to enjoy watching us and put smiles on their faces."
