Saturday October 5th game will remember former manager

25 July 2019

Northampton Town will pay tribute to Justin Edinburgh when the Cobblers play host to Leyton Orient on Saturday October 5th.

The club will hold a pre-match collection to support the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation which is a charity set up by the Edinburgh family in memory of Justin to benefit health and wellbeing causes.

The match programme will feature a photo of Justin on the cover, with a tribute inside, while the game itself will be preceded by a period of silence in Justin's memory.

"We feel it is appropriate to use this game to pay tribute to Justin," said Chief Executive James Whiting.

"When the fixtures came out, we always had this game in mind and it is the ideal opportunity to help raise funds for the Justin Edinburgh Foundation.

"I was present, along with the Chairman, at the memorial service for Justin last week. That was a wonderful service to celebrate Justin's life. We have been in touch with the family and we feel it is right to use the fixture between ourselves and Leyton Orient to pay our own particular tribute."
