The Crawley Town game was Northampton Town's Community Day to celebrate the work Northampton Town Football Club do to support and deliver projects that help improve people’s health, build stronger, connected communities and enhance life opportunities.
The fun started outside the stadium ahead of kick off. Supporters arriving could take part in fun activities that included a bouncy castle, football on the club's inflatable pitch, head tennis games, face-painting and a chance to meet the emergency services.
Meanwhile, over in the Grange Mortgages family area, the usual fun and games took place, including a penalty shoot out, table tennis, basketball, free fruit, art and craft and the chance to meet some of the players.
Hari and Ollie from our disability team were on hand to help matchday announcer Neil read the teams out!
Pitchside before kick off, we handed over a cheque to Mustafa El-Bayati, which was the proceeds of the fundraising appeal to help Muzzy secure a new wheelchair, while as the teams came out, some players from the Northampton Town girls teams formed the Guard of Honour and waved flags around the centre circle.
At half time, there were demonstrations of walking football on the pitch with the Northampton Town Walking Football team, with a lap of honour from the Northampton Town girls and disability teams.
We also had the usual Grosvenor Casino cross bar challenge and the IN 'n' OUT Autocentres Cup penalty shoot out. Thank you to everyone who came along to support Community Day 2019!
