Cobblers teenager Camron McWilliams was handed his debut for St Ives Town at the weekend.
The 18-year-old signed on a month's loan for the Southern League club last Friday and was thrown straight into the starting line-up 24 hours later.
But it was a disappointing start for McWilliams who, despite showing 'promise' on debut, couldn't stop St Ives from losing 3-0 to Hitchin Town.
Morgan Roberts produced another lively performance for AFC Rushden & Diamonds as he created several goalscoring opportunities, however they were beaten 3-1 by Biggleswade Town.
Fellow Town youngster Ryan Hughes, who's also on loan at Diamonds, has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.
