>Thornton’s wonder strike sparks team celebration

>

It was evident yesterday that after Kevin Thornton majestically swung his left foot to curl the ball into the top corner of the Shrewsbury net that he’s been waiting a long time to produce a moment like that once again. Thornton’s well documented problems off the pitch meant that a drop to non league to get himself back on track was very much needed.

After Sammo signed him on, we saw brief glimpses of a real talent and despite a red card a few weeks ago, hopefully the troubles are behind him. Thornton’s first goal for the club against the Shrews was met with a massive celebration as he rushed to the bench to be surrounded by Cobblers substitutes in an outpouring of relief, perhaps the result of months of uncertainty over his career and a good bond with his new team mates.

If the midfielder can get to anywhere near 100% before the end of the season then we have a real ace in our pack!
