Cobblers boss previews the Emirates FA Cup tie with Cambridge United

4 November 2021

Jon Brady says he is keen to enjoy a run in this season's competition as he previews the Emirates FA Cup first round tie against Cambridge United.

Brady says the club is in a good place at the moment, both on and off the pitch, and he believes a good cup run would only add to that.

“The FA Cup is steeped in history, it’s a competition that means a lot and I don’t think it has lost its appeal to us or anyone,” he said.

“The romance is there if you can get on a run, we’ve had some good games in recent years like against Derby and everyone would love another cup run.

“A cup run can create memories that last forever and every year it’s a chance for players to make memories for a life time.

“Marc Richards and I both played for Cambridge and Colin Calderwood was manager there but that won’t be the focus on Saturday.

“We are doing everything we can to be the best we can and we want to progress in the competition.

“The players are excited to test themselves against a League 1 side and it’s a chance to see how far we’ve come with our new team.

“Cambridge are a strong well organised side, they’ve had an upturn in form recently and if you look at the league positions of the two teams we are probably the underdogs but there is nothing better than being that underdog.

“The atmosphere has been really good at our home games and I really urge all our supporters if they haven’t got a ticket yet to get one and come along on Saturday.

“We’ve had some good news as a club this week about the East Stand and I feel as a club we are in a really good place.

"The first team are doing well, the academy are too as the performance showed on Tuesday, the Women are top of their league and with the East Stand news, there is a lot to be pleased about.

“We are driving forward in a sensible way on and off the pitch and I think it’s a really good time to be involved with Northampton Town.”
