Northampton boss Brady: Brighton loanee Leonard among best to wear this shirt

Northampton boss Jon Brady has sung the praises of loan pair Marc Leonard and Kieron Bowie.

Leonard is on-loan from Brighton and Bowie from Fulham.

Ahead of their final home game against Exeter, Brady said: “It would be great to see fans come down and see Marc Leonard and Kieron Bowie play at home probably for one last time because they are two high quality players.

"They will go back to their respective clubs in the summer but they have both been brilliant for us during the two years."

On Leonard, he added: “In my time here and from knowing the Cobblers over the years, I'd say he has probably been one of the best players to ever wear a Cobblers shirt.

"What they have added to us with their ability and their attitude, they have been a manager's dream.

“They've played 80, 90 games each over the two seasons and helped us get promotion, it's absolutely fantastic.

“Every challenge you set them, they surpass it.

“Their commitment to the club, to the cause and to us and to represent themselves in the way they do has been exceptional.

“I've thoroughly enjoyed working with them."
