U18S RETURN TO ACTION WITH WIN AT STEVENAGE

EFL Youth Alliance Merit Division action

22 February 2020

Northampton Town's youth team travelled to Stevenage on Saturday in the EFL Youth Alliance Merit Division.

The Cobblers won the game 2-1 with Michael Harding and Ethan Johnston, fresh from signing a professional contract this week, scoring the goals as Jon Brady's team got their Merit League campaign off to a winning start.

"It was a tough game on a difficult pitch but we showed glimpses of quality and a lot of resilience," said under 18s coach Brady.

"It was our first competitive game in quite a while and it's pleasing to get our Merit League 1 campaign off to a good start with what was a very young side.

"We had a lot of first years in the side and that again really demonstrates the player pathway we have at the football club."
