After suffering in the beginning and the mid-season, Northampton Town FC have once again proved why their fans' is their main drive for success. What started as a six day from oblivion position led to the first place and currently 13 points advantage over the second-placed Oxford United in the League Two.
This has gotten Northampton Town FC the ticket to promotion - and a new fresh start in the League One starting in late August this year. Skipping joyfully towards this promotion and with even eight games to play, Northampton Town FC is already planning a new strategy for League One - hopefully as dominant as the one they have shown this season.
Known as the specialists in light and shade, Northampton Town FC has only lived through one 'Season in the Sun' placed in the top flight. From the 60s and the times of Joe Mercer afterwards, this club has claimed a big rise of Northampton. After that, they went down and down, seeking for re-election to the Football League in 1972. However, what matters most is the current situation, which once again shows that Northampton Town FC is not just an ordinary club - but a team made of strong flesh and thick blood.
As James Averill of the Supporters' Trust states, 'This is a big town with a potential to be a Championship club. Despite the chance of building the stadium we wanted is missed, this might be the making of us - and being the brink of something truly special.'
The hope of Northampton Town FC's fans is certainly on the rise. And although the Cobblers will be without Marc Richards who is ruled out for the rest of the season, they have ensured the leading position.
The pitch invasion was only the tip of the iceberg regarding the fans' excitement about the promotion to League 1. Joy and hopes up were the main focus of the 7,500 capacity crowd that has relentlessly supported Northampton Town FC through the years - even during their crisis in November.
Echoing the achievements of AFC Bournemouth from 7 years ago, Northampton Town FC is another one of the teams that proved the world that despite the financial uncertainty has sometimes nothing to do with the spirit of the game. Let's just hope that this momentum will rise and guide us through a lot of wins next season - and keep our fingers crossed for the Championship.
