11 March ~ As spotted by an eagle-eyed poster on the WSC messageboard, Northampton Town announced this week that they would now be stocking "Premier League items" in their club shop. If it's any consolation to the club's fans: "In addition, many Cobblers items have been reduced in price by 50 per cent or more to allow supporters to show their support for the lads' play-off push by kitting themselves out in claret and white at bargain prices." So you can always treat yourself to a half-price NTFC fleece while picking up a Arsenal beanie bear or a Chelsea piggy bank.
