I have been enjoying some old footage (64/65/66) of the cobblers on youtube today. Is there much in existence anywhere else?

I hope that most of you can view these..

Firstly a treat for big Chris  Smiley 01/01/1966 Sheffield United v Northampton Town.



and from the season before... Northampton Town vs Derby County, Apr 10th 1965.

Can anyone find any footage of the Aston Villa FA Cup game back in 1984(?) at the County Ground. Mark Walters' goal won goal of the month or maybe even goal of the season I think but cannot find any video of it anywhere. My elder brother was a ball boy.

Would love to find Cobblers v Arsenal in FA Cup, Jan 1958 - have looked all over, but no luck.
It was 3-1 to Cobblers, well over 20000 there including 14year old, me with my Uncle Bill, with Dave Bowen playing for the Gunners, and MOTD commentary by Cliff Michelmore (remember him?). Happy day!

Some great memories there. Those were the days Centre forwards able to shoulder barge the goalie into the net with the ball, Would never be allowed these days, you cant even blow on them. And those pitches, sliding on the mud. I wonder what the premiership primadonnas would make of that?

The Bournemouth game was the only time I ever sat in the Main Stand at the County Ground. Excellent game to watch, really thought we were going to get 10 that day.

While the players are celebrating the fifth goal against Bournemouth a young fan ran on the pitch to join them with his silk claret Cobblers scarf round his wrist, flared trousers and big collars of the time. That lad is John Strother a dear old mate a few of you will know now living out in Oz. Hopefully you'll read this John, always great to see that grin mate.

I remember the Bournemouth game. I was standing on the Kop, so for me all the goals happened at the Hotel End, and I didn't get a good view. I fully expected us to win 10 or 12 nil. Great to see Paul Stratford and Jim Hall in action.
Anyone recall the Hereford match when they had 4 sent off, and we still only managed a 1-1 draw?

Happy days indeed John.

The grin to the camera showed you put some thought into it mate. Not just a mindless pitch invasion. 😀
Stam told me about it at the County game a couple of weeks back. I've probably watched that footage 40/50 times and never realised it was you.

Hope all's good with you. Have a fear Christmas and New Year.

i remember the bournemouth game went home elated and told my dad how well we done that day only to be told in his usual northampton optimism should have come home at half time must have been a boring 2nd half , if i remember rightly didnt the rest of the side try to tee up best up for a hat trick rather than score them selves , that was my excuse any way

The Barnsley game 5-0 was on Sunday soccer or whatever it was called from that season also Cambs Utd way, both would make good viewing.

This is truly heartwarming and must have given you the odd goosebump or two seeing it again nearly 40 years later Smiley I hope you are able to share the footage with family and friends  Wink

 Remembering the Bournemouth game my old mate Jim Tomlin arrived for the second half when you could get in at reduced price and never saw any goals at all, he still remembered that game many years later when we used to discuss Cobblers games past, great to see the Jim Hall hat trick again.

I was at the Sheff Utd game, I remember seeing Kenneth Wolstenhome outside the ground and still feel disgruntled about the Mick Jones charge on Norman Coe. Was that the last time that a goal was given from a shoulder charge on the keeper?  Also at the Bournemouth game, that was a good team.

Yep, my girlfriends dad was just the same, when I went round that Saturday evening to see her, his first words were 'What happened to Cobblers in the second half then'? Miserable git.  Mind you, the second half was an anti climax.  6,780 there that day.
