Gesture made as a thank you to supporter who has attended over 1,500 consecutive games

9 June 2020

Northampton Town have arranged for supporter Lee Geary to be part of the Cobbler in the Crowd initiative.

The club have produced the cut out of Lee, who reached the landmark of attending 1,500 consecutive games shortly before football was suspended, in tribute to his many years of loyal support.

"We wanted to pay our own tribute to Lee and we couldn't possibly not have his image at the game," said Chief Executive James Whiting.

"He has a terrific record of attending more than 1,500 consecutive games and as a club, we wanted to arrange to have Lee's image with us. We know he, and thousands of members of the Shoe Army will be with us in spirit, and with hundreds of Cobbler in the Crowd cut outs ordered by supporters, we know many of their images will be with us too.

"We have seen a good level of interest in the scheme, and there has been a good level of interest in our virtual hospitality and mascot packages too."

All supporters can arrange to be ‘virtually' inside the PTS Academy Stadium for the play off semi final first leg against Cheltenham Town as part of the Cobbler in the Crowd promotion.

As a Cobbler in the Crowd, supporters can arrange to have their own face in the stand or alternatively this would make a fantastic Father's Day gift, a birthday present for a loved one or even a tribute to someone no longer with us who used to enjoy Northampton Town games.
