Cobblers boss Keith Curle has been working hard over the summer and that work will be continuing throughout pre-season.
“I enjoyed what must have amounted to about three days off over the summer,” said a smiling Cobblers boss.
“I was ready for pre-season a few days after the end of last season. We’ve been working hard through the summer to make sure we have recruited the right players, not only in terms of their footballing ability but just as importantly the right personalities.
“A lot of hard work has gone in behind the scenes and that’s not just with the players we have been able to bring in.
“We met a few players that didn’t quite fit what we wanted and right from day one I think I’ve had a good understanding of what this club wants and what it wants to do.”
