Trust board update: June 2020
Play-offs v Cheltenham
We would like to wish the Cobblers players and staff every success in their upcoming play-off games against Cheltenham Town.
And we would also like to wish the Shoe Army an enjoyable time too, especially those who are cut out for the occasion as part of the Cobbler in the Crowd promotion.
Here’s hoping the team can get to get to Wembley and be in with a promotion shout to cap a campaign played to a finale in the most challenging of circumstances.
Good luck Cobblers!!
East stand development update
The Trust board met virtually to discuss the latest update regarding the east stand development.
We are cautiously optimistic that this is a big step in the right direction but the plan has not been shared with the Trust and we require more detail to ascertain whether any potential deal is in the best interests of the football club and the local taxpayer.
We will be submitting a Freedom of Information request to Northampton Borough Council and firmly believe that the town’s citizens are entitled to full disclosure of the proposal under discussion.

Face coverings are now mandatory for anyone using public transport in England and our popular claret-and-white face masks remain on sale via the Trust’s website.

The board has agreed a blueprint for community ownership at Northampton Town FC.
The campaign document was prepared by the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) with submissions added by the Trust.
Once an amended and finalised document is received back from the FSA it will be sent out to Trust members for information and feedback.
NTFC 2018/19 accounts
As a shareholder of the football club, the Trust is in possession of Northampton Town Football Club’s full accounts for the year end June 2019.
We will be issuing a statement on the club’s accounts at the beginning of next month.
