FOOTBALL & EDUCATION PROGRAMME DEVELOPMENT SQUAD BEATEN BY WEST BROM

A report on Wednesday's game

18 October 2023

The Northampton Town Football and Education Programme Development squad lost 3-0 at home to West Bromwich Albion in the EFL Community & Education Football Alliance League Central 2 on Wednesday afternoon.

The Cobblers’ opponents continued their 100% start to the league season.

The first half was a quiet affair with little action of note.

The hosts created a few half-chances without properly testing the ‘keeper, whilst the visitors came closest to an opening goal when drilling a low strike across the face of goal and hitting the top of the bar with a header from a corner.

West Brom opened the scoring early in the second half, their striker lifting the ball over the onrushing Oscar Gasewski first-time.

They doubled their lead just three minutes later as a wide free-kick was headed home from close range.

The Cobblers were struggling to find a way into the contest, threatening for the first time when Harry Cowley cut inside and drove a yard over from the edge of the area.

West Brom put the result beyond all doubt late on when an attacker drove down the byline and found the back of the net from a tight angle.

The FEP are holding an open evening and open training sessions next week. Please register your interest by contacting lee.garlick@ntfc.co.uk (Men’s) or josh.oldfield@ntfc.co.uk (Women’s).
