Northampton Town Club Profile
Can we say the first time we met Northampton Town was an eye-popping experience? Oh, looks like we just did. That feisty 2005-6 FA Cup clash is now well and truly behind us, however. And we have since had cause to play the Cobblers in league fixtures. But we can’t say the bad blood had entirely gone away either; two lads getting themselves sent off in a 2010-1 League Two match at their place for us. Still, things are now a lot calmer between us (we think).
Part of that might be down to the fact that distance is normally kept between the two clubs. At least, that had been the case. It’s rare for us to meet in two successive league campaigns. In the most recent examples, it’s been them on the way up. After promotion up to League One in 2020, however, relegation the following season brought them back down to League Two. And, with it, we go again against the Cobblers; hoping to improve our poor record to that point.

Northampton Town Ground Information
Away Fans’ Stand
Imperial Cars South Stand
Facilities for Disabled Fans
Behind the away end, there are some disabled car parking spaces that you can make use of – if you have a Blue Badge. You’ll need to pre-book, however. To do so, call the club on 01604 683777. The spaces are on a first-come, first-served and you won’t be able to book a place on a matchday.
Getting into the ground, fans who receive the medium or high-level disability allowance do qualify for concession tickets – along with a carer. The Cobblers ask that you contact their ticket office for greater clarity on this, however.
There are spaces for wheelchair users at the front of the away stand; accessible toilets on hand too around 50m from disabled supporters’ seating areas. If you are suffering from a visual impairment, 10 headsets are available for Hospital Radio commentary.
At the stadium itself is Carrs Bar behind the Main Stand, which does let away fans in (or at least that’s what we’re told). Otherwise, there are a few options on the retail park next door. That includes the Sixfields Tavern, a Hungry Horse outlet that may be home fans only. We also hear that TGI Friday’s is a popular haunt for away fans too, while there’s a tenpin bowling alley as a more unusual alternative. Otherwise, it’s into town you go…
Northampton Town Travel Information – Distance: 47 miles
Leave the M1 at Junction 15A and take the A43 towards Northampton. The ground is on your right. It’s that simple. We could dress it up elaborately. But why would we want to?
You’ll find a decent-sized car park at the ground, which will cost £4 to use. It’s far from the most extortionate car park charge we know about too. There’s a word of warning from the Cobblers, however. They “strongly advise” against using anywhere but official car parks – mainly because you might get a ticket. So, at least they’re looking out for you.
Services to: LONDON EUSTON
Northampton train station is closest. But it’s about two miles away from the ground. So, you might wish to grab a taxi to complete the rest of your trip to Sixfields.
