Northampton Town Victorious at Ability Counts Festival

Northampton Town MDFC Under-16s and Open Age have both won their respective Ability Counts Leagues.
Both sides were crowned champions at the final Ability Counts Festival at Netherton Football Club last weekend.

The Under-16 League has been fiercely contested all season long, but Northampton Town were able to retain the title after seeing off competition from Wellingborough OGs in second place and Netherton Football Club in third.

Meanwhile, Northampton Town were also victorious in the Open Age League, finishing ahead of last season’s winners Rushden to claim the trophy in comfortable fashion.

Tony Porter, Manager of Northampton Town Under-16s, said: “It was a very tough but enjoyable season in which we retained the league title. This season was full of entertainment from start to finish and the quality of football being played in this league is phenomenal.”

The Ability Counts League provides regular football opportunities for people with disabilities and produces a clear pathway from grassroots disability football to elite disability football programmes.
