MARC RICHARDS HAPPY WITH FIRST PRE-SEASON WORKOUT

Behind closed doors match took place this afternoon

11 July 2023

Northampton Town took on Southampton u23s at the club's Moulton College training base this afternoon in a behind closed doors pre-season match.

The match itself was split in to four 20 minute blocks. The first two blocks were made up of mainly first team players and the final two blocks involved a lot of the under 18's squad.

The game itself finished 2-4 to Southampton u23s, Kieron Bowie and under 18's player Leo Jenkins scored for the Cobblers.

Marc Richards, who took the game for the Cobblers, said, "This was a much needed run out for the lads as we look to dust off some cobwebs ahead of Saturday's match with Leicester City.

"It was a good chance for us as staff to look at the players and assess where they are in terms of match fitness and get some minutes in to their legs.

"We thank Southampton for travelling to us and for providing us with a competitive game ahead of the weekend."

The Cobblers face Leicester City on Saturday as part of the club's open day in which Northampton Town Women will play at Sixfields, taking on Cambridge United Women. Tickets for the match can be purchased at ntfcdirect.co.uk
