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.

Up first is Ian Clarkson.

Danny and Neil speak to Ian about his move from Stoke City to Sixfields, his teammates and that glorious game at Wembley.

So sit back and reminisce with one of our heroes ahead of the Wembley Anniversary event that we're hosting on May 20th. Click here for ticket details.
