Wembley 97: John Frain

25 years on from Northampton Town's first visit to Wembley Stadium - and our first win there - in the Division 3 Play Off Final, It's All Cobblers To Me speaks to some of the legends of that era.

This time we're speaking to the man who won the game for The Cobblers. It's the one and only John Frain.

So sit back and reminisce with one of our heroes ahead of the Wembley Anniversary event that we're hosting on May 20th.https://www.ntfc.co.uk/commercial/125/ ( Click here for ticket details.)

Guest Bio:

John Frain

Cobblers legend. Need we say more?! Born in Yardley, Frain played for just 3 clubs during his football career, mostly at left back: Birmingham City, Northampton Town and Moor Green.

Frain's biggest moment came in the 93rd minute of the 1997 Division 3 Play Off Final, where he scored the only goal of the game to send 32,000 Cobblers fans into raptures.
