Northampton Saints players have apologised to a pub in the town centre after a complaint on social media about their behaviour, the club has confirmed.

The incident happened on Friday night in the Princess Alexandra pub in Northampton. It is understood that the squad was on a social night out in the town.

The pub posted a message on their Facebook page over the weekend making a number of allegations about the actions of some of the players.

A spokeswoman for the pub said staff were disappointed in the actions of the players but added: “We have had an apology from the players which we have accepted and they are welcome back in the bar as long as they behave themselves.”

It is understood that the party was not exclusively Saints players and included other members of the public. Some of the party also stayed after others left to clear up broken glasses left in the bar.

A spokesman for Northampton Saints said it was not an official club night but a social event organised by some of the players.

“Members of the squad have been to the pub and apologised for any offence that they caused by their behaviour.

“The club does not condone any behaviour like this at all but until we have looked into it we cannot comment any further.”
