The Cobblers boss on a busy week of community support

29 March 2020

As you would expect from a community club, Northampton Town Football Club have been working hard to support the community of Northampton and beyond during this coronavirus outbreak.

Northampton Town manager Keith Curle has been explaining the benefits of officials, staff and the players at the club reaching out to supporters during this coronavirus outbreak.

Curle, Chairman Kelvin Thomas and some of the players have been making calls and sending video messages to supporters and the Cobblers boss said this is a big part of the club's community ethos.

"As representatives of the club, we have a chance to reach out to supporters and their loved ones to thank them for their support, to let them know we are here for them, we are thinking about them and we want to do as much as we can to help," said the Cobblers boss.

"I have spoken to a few supporters, the Chairman, the players and the coaching staff have all been involved too, just letting the local community know we are here for them.

"Having a unity and a connection is massive for this club. We do value the supporters deeply and hopefully our work this week has shown that. The supporters I have spoken to have said it is massively uplifting for them to hear my voice and if it has helped in some small way then that's great.

"I have found out some really interesting things and heard some really interesting stories in the last few days. There is such a huge amount of affection for this football club and it is very humbling.

"A few minutes of our time can make a huge impact."
