Dual registration keeps young Saints ticking over

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

While only 23 players make the Saints match day squad, as many as nine players have topped up their weekend action so far this season on dual registration duty.

Dual registration allows Saints players to train full-time at the club, while also joining their 'loan' side for selected sessions and fixtures.

Both Tom Collins and Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi have been impressing for the Wanderers on Monday evenings and in a bid to further boost their first team chances, have also turned out for Championship outfit Moseley.

It’s not just locally that the young Saints are plying their trade, either. Sam Olver has committed to the long journey North to Doncaster, topping up his game time in the Championship, while Alex Moon and George Furbank have journeyed east to link up with National 2 South contenders Cambridge.

Closer to home Rory Hutchinson has appeared in Coventry’s midfield, Ampthill have hooked James Fish for their front row and Will Allman has appeared for Loughborough Students. Tim Cardall, meanwhile, has the shortest trip of the lot, representing former club Old Northamptonians up at Billing Road.

With no LV= Cup for the 2015/16 season and a couple of weeks’ break until the next Aviva ‘A’ League outing at Leicester, dual registration will continue to provide an outlet for a number of Saints to gain invaluable playing experience as they develop towards further or even first senior honours in black, green and gold.
