“Such an exceptional performance has brought prestige to Northampton, creating a positive focus on the county town of Northamptonshire.

“I’m also delighted that Towcester Mill Brewery has agreed to assist in sponsoring the civic reception. This is a fantastic independent small brewery based in the Old Mill in the centre of Towcester within the county, producing excellent beers.”

Additionally, footway restrictions on Black Lion Hill put in place for highways works are due to be temporarily lifted so football fans for the parade can have access.
