Cobblers set to meet winners of Northern section in overall final

9 November 2019

The Northampton Town under 16 Academy side, led by Gary Mills and Jim Scott, have been crowned Champions of the EFL Youth Alliance Southern Division.

After finishing runners up last season, the Cobblers have won the title this time around, winning five and drawing one of their seven fixtures in the EFL Youth Alliance South East Division to qualify for a final where they emerged victorious.

FA rules prevent the publication of results of individual matches, but the Cobblers have been crowned Champions of the EFL Youth Alliance Southern Division and will meet a yet to be decided winner of the Northern Division in an overall final next month.

"The lads have performed really well all season," said Lead Youth Development Phase Coach Shane Goddard.

"They have done exceptionally well to first make it through to the final and then win the overall competition.

"With the under 18s top of the table and the under 16s now crowned Champions of the southern section, as well as the impact our Academy products are making, either in the first team or out on loan, we can be really proud of the work of the Northampton Town Academy."
