The football season is upon us and for those working in the game like myself, trust me, it comes around quickly! I was delighted during the close season to see that one of our local clubs, Northampton Town, have signed a deal with Connect FM with the radio station becoming the Cobblers’ new Commercial Radio Partner.
Part of this partnership sees my co-presenter of Talking Sport Gregg Nunney becoming the new match day announcer at Sixfields. Best of luck Gregg! To celebrate this partnership, on this week’s show we will be Talking Cobblers! I know, I know, most of you think we talk cobblers every week, but this show is dedicated to all things Northampton Town.
And what a treat we have in store for Cobblers fans. We will be speaking to manager Rob Page to find out what it is like to be in the hot-seat at Sixfields. Page has been busy in the transfer market during the summer and one of the new recruits, Harry Beautyman, will also be on the show talking about his move from Peterborough United. I know Beauts well from his time at the ABAX Stadium and I can assure all Town fans, that you won’t be disappointed with his talent on the pitch and his friendly nature off it. Just don’t ask him to sing. (trust me on that).
Of course, every club needs a goal-scorer and Marc Richards is certainly that. He is in his second spell at the club and fired the club to glory last term. David Buchanan will also be speaking on the Cobblers special as we bring you everything there is to know from the camp 24 hours ahead of that clash with the Cod Army.
We will also be talking about the superb campaign last term and replaying a piece we did with chairman Kelvin Thomas in the summer. We will also be talking about the local derbies that our clubs will be enjoying during the summer.
So don’t miss out, make sure you are listening to me and Gregg from 5pm on Friday!
