RANDOM FACT

During 1905-1994 the Cobblers (tenants from 1897-1994) shared the then three sided football ground with the Cricket Club (tenants from 1905-to date) and during the summer the football pitch doubled up as a car park for those watching the cricket. The ground share also meant the football club had to start the season with consecutive away matches as the cricket club were still using the venue.
