Foundation celebrates Saints heritage and Sporting Heritage Day

Northampton Saints Foundation are delighted to run four events celebrating the heritage of Northampton Saints Rugby Football Club.

The events, which take place in September and October, have been organised by the Foundation's Partnerships and Heritage Lead, Clare Clark and Club Historian Graham McKechnie. The events, which are free of charge, explore the history of Northampton Saints and remember the individuals who have bought the club to where it is today.

Clare said ‘Northampton Saints Foundation has a heritage team which is responsible for preserving the past and protecting the future of Northampton Saints Rugby Football Club. The four events invite the local community to discover the club’s origins and uncover the stories of its key players. We invite all members of the public to book their place and explore with us.”
