Midfielder excited for first experience of third tier

25 July 2020

Midfielder Ryan Watson is looking forward to a new experience next season – life in League 1.

Watson has not played in the third tier before, but before he looked ahead, he looked back to that night at Wembley where the Cobblers secured promotion.

"The win at Wembley gave us amazing memories, it was a very special night and I will remember it for the rest of my life,” he said.

"We are looking forward to getting back to training and back to work. We are putting the foundations in place for another good season and we are ready to work hard and to see where that takes us.

"This summer is different, it is not a normal close season. Everyone is in the same position, we have got to be patient, do our preparation and be ready to work hard when we get back.

"League 1 is a new experience for me. I have had a few seasons in League 2 and it will be good to come back to the new season as a League 1 player. I am really looking forward to that challenge.

"We will be up against some big clubs next season but why not go up against those teams and see where it takes us. We have a good spirit and that can take you a long way.

"It was a dream come true for me to score at Wembley. Like I said, it is something I will never forget but it has gone now and we have got to keep progressing and moving forward."
