Saturday is Northampton Town's Community Day, and there is a busy timetable of events planned 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 starts outside the stadium ahead of kick off. From noon onwards, supporters arriving can take part in fun activities that include a bouncy castle, football on the club's inflatable pitch, head tennis games, facepainting and a chance to meet the emergency services.
Meanwhile, over in the Grange Mortgages family area, the usual fun and games will be taking place, which includes a penalty shoot out, table tennis, basketball, free fruit, art and craft and the chance to meet some of the players.
The 'bring a pound to the ground' collection will be taking place, while keep an ear out for Hari and Ollie from out disability team who will be helping matchday announcer Neil read the teams out!
Pitchside before kick off, we will be handing over a cheque to Mustafa El-Bayati, which will be the proceeds of the fundraising appeal to help Muzzy secure a new wheelchair, while as the teams come out, some players from the Northampton Town girls teams will be forming the Guard of Honour and waving flags around the centre circle.
At half time, there will be demonstration 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 will also have the usual Grosvenor Casino cross bar challenge, the IN 'n' OUT Autocentres Cup penalty shoot out and a surprise or two too!
