Best wishes as we say goodbye to a number of players

6 May 2019

We wish all of those players leaving the club this summer well, and for some, it marks the end of a lengthy time as a Northampton Town player.

David Buchanan joined the club in the summer of 2015, and went on to make 187 appearances over the last four years, the first 106 of which were consecutive, a run only ended by a harsh red card against Shrewsbury Town in April 2017. His time at the club also included the League 2 title in 2015/16, a season where he was ever present.

But, beyond what happened on the pitch, Buchanan was also a big supporter of the club's community work and would often give up much of his own time to support good causes.

Thank you David, it is time to say goodbye, but we wish you every success with your ongoing career.

Sam Foley joined the club in May 2017 and made 68 appearances, scoring five times. He was also a big supporter of the club's multi disability football and again our thanks and best wishes to Sam.

Dean Bowditch is another player who has spent the last two seasons at the club, although in his case he did spent part of last season on loan at Stevenage. In this most recent spell at Northampton Town, Dean Bowditch made 40 appearances and scored three times.

Shay Facey arrived at the club in January 2018, and went on to make 38 appearances, scoring once, while Jack Bridge was another January 2018 arrival, and he scored three times in 36 appearances.

Luke Coddington spent two years at the club, playing twice and since Christmas has been back up to David Cornell, while youngsters James Goff and Joe Iaciofano are also moving on, and to all of those departing the club this summer, we say thank you and good luck.
