Jabba's Comments

Jamie Forrester was one of a number of players who showed much promise in the FA Youth Cup winning side (I seem to remember him scoring a spectacular overhead in the final against Manchester United), but he never quite had the pace or skill that he needed to make it at the top level.

Having said that, he's enjoyed a good career with several lower-division clubs, as well as having a spell in Holland with Utrecht. On his return to England, he joined up with Northampton and is near the top of the division goal-scoring charts this season.

Chris Marriott corrected one of my facts and added: he's still a Cobbler and is just coming to form again.

After Terry Fenwick arrived as manager, Jamie found himself out of favour and was moved on to Hull where a promising start was curtailed by a broken bone in his foot after two months.

Jon says: Jamie was a god for the Cobblers!
