JESSE HELPED LEAD TEAMS OUT DURING BREAK IN TREATMENT

The story of one of our very special mascots on Saturday

6 February 2023

We were delighted to welcome Jesse Mansfield to Saturday's game as one of our matchday mascots.

Jesse, whose favourite player is Sam Hoskins, is from Northampton and was diagnosed with high-risk Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) in August.

After being told that a rare gene arrangement means that Jesse is in a high-risk category, his parents Dave and Zoe launched a crowdfunding page to try to raise around a quarter of a million pounds to pay for pioneering treatment in the US or Far East.

A gap in treatment gave the club the opportunity to welcome Jesse to the game on Saturday as one of our mascots and he met Jon Brady and the squad and help lead the team out.

Writing on Facebook, Jesse's Dad dave said: "Amazing Day yesterday at Northampton Town Football Club, thank you……Despite Jesse Mansfield feeling a bit under the weather, he had a lovely time 🥰 👞⚽️"
