KEITH CURLE - 'I AM SEEING HOW MUCH THIS CLUB MEANS TO THE COMMUNITY'

The Cobblers boss on spending time chatting to supporters

4 April 2020

Keith Curle says he is really enjoying the phone calls he is making to supporters.

The Cobblers boss, along with other members of staff and players, are making calls to supporters who might be feeling isolated or who are in the vulnerable category, and Curle says they are keeping his own spirits up as much as the supporters he connects with.

"We are in regular contact with the players, the other staff and the supporters as much as we can be and those calls have been fantastic to make," he said.

"It is vitally important. You judge anything you do by the response you get and it has been superb. They have been sharing with me their memories, their association and affinity with the football club and just what it means to them. It has been uplifting for me to hear these stories and what Northampton Town means to so many people and how many lives the club impacts.

"Football isn't the most important thing right now but it shows how much it means and the value the supporters place upon the club. I spoke to a lady the other day who has been a supporter for 73 years and she had some fantastic memories to share. She is still coming to games now and that is superb.

"The players, the Chairman and some of the other staff have got involved too and we are covering as many people as we can. We are proud to work for a club that does a lot of community work and is at the heart of the community. We want to stay engaged and we want supporters to know we are there for them. You know you are working for an organisation that doesn't just care about their paying public but the whole community."
