The fun is due to get under way at 10am at Sixfields with gates opening at 9.45am, and as well as supporters getting the chance to have a first look at the new home kit, they can also watch an open training session from 10.30am as manager Rob Page and his staff put the squad through their paces.

There won’t just be the chance for Cobblers fans to watch the action - they are being encouraged to take part as well.

Supporters will be invited to participate in a penalty shootout on the pitch against the first team squad at 11.15am, while all Gullivers Junior Cobblers members will be welcomed on to the pitch to play in a special match against the first team (ko 11.30am).

Away from the pitch, the Sky Bet League Two trophy will be on show in the Grosvenor 1897 Suite, and supporters will be able to have their picture taken with the silverware.

The players will also be waiting to meet supporters, and will be available for pictures and autographs from 12.30pm.

There will also be plenty of stalls and fun activities for all the family taking place through the day.

The new Cobblers home kit will be unveiled on Saturday - but unfortunately will not be available for supporters to buy.

Due to an unforeseen delay in the supply chain, delivery of the kit will now be delayed until August 5.

The kit will be available to pre-order online and in-store from Saturday, and there is the bonus that anybody attending the open day and pre-ordering the new kit will receive a free Nike football on the day.

All kits will be available for collection from August 5, prior to the first game of the season against Fleetwood, or with the option of free delivery.
