Northampton youngster undergoing cancer treatment to be mascot on Saturday

19 January 2023

We are delighted to welcome Jesse Mansfield to Saturday's game as one of our matchday mascots and the programme front cover star.

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 gives the club the opportunity to welcome Jesse to the game on Saturday as one of our mascots and he will meet Jon Brady and the squad and help lead the team out.

We can't wait to meet you Jesse!
