Known for its limited cricket outnumber, Northamptonshire County Cricket Club is one of 18 major county clubs that make up the domestic cricket structure of England and Wales. Northampton is also home to the Northamshire Regiment, which was founded in 1881. It is the oldest regiment in England and Wales and the second oldest in Britain. Northampton County Cricket Club (known as Northampton County Football Club after its name in limited cricket) is a member of all 17th, 18th and 19th counties in England and all counties in Wales and is part of a larger group of 18 "large counties" that make up the structure of English - Welsh domestic cricket, with a total membership of more than 2,000.
The city is home to Northampton Town Football Club, a Premier League football club based in Franklin Gardens and the St James area. The city has hosted numerous football matches, most notably the 2001 Northamptonshire County Football League final, held at Franklin Garden in St James's Area, and is home to the South Yorkshire County Football Team, the 2015 North Hampshire County League Premiership Final and the 2016 North Yorkshire League Cup Final, all of which are held at Franklin Gardens in St James's Park.
The status of the new town has made Northampton a more general place and the footwear trade has continued to decline, but the Cobblers, known for their shoemaking, are based at Sixfields Stadium. There used to be a plant at Carlsberg, which was shut down and replaced in 1974 by a new one at St James's Park, the former home of Northamptonshire County football team, before it merged and closed in 2014. In 1974, it shared its Sixfield Stadium with Coventry City after a protracted dispute between the two clubs over the use of the stadium lasted more than a decade.
The A14 is close to the north of Northampton and connects the east and west of the city. There is the option of taking a bus to Birmingham Airport, which allows residents to explore their surroundings without a car. Dr Beeching was closed in the 1960s and trains from north to Birmingham and south to London are now only picked up by trains from Birmingham or from London to the north. It is easily accessible by bus from the city centre and can also be reached by train from Manchester, London, Manchester Airport and even Birmingham City Airport.
Other major cities are also easily accessible from Northampton via the A14, M6 and B5, as well as by bus. This means that Daventry, North Southamptonshire and South Northamptonshire will be merged into a new single authority called West Northamptonhire, while the second single authority, North Northamston, will consist of the city centre and parts of neighbouring counties. The creation of a single unitary council covering all of North ampton and its surroundings would give the town the same status as Birmingham, Leicester and Milton Keynes, which represent the other three major cities in the North East of England.
Northampton is close to the M1 motorway, which links Northampton with London at its southernmost point and connects it to London via the A14, M6 and B5. The second outing was the first of a three-day tour of Northamptonshire that began in Bedford and then on the north side of the city.
