Morton nets for Northampton in Wembley win

30th June

Albion youngster Callum Morton scored at Wembley to help Northampton Town seal promotion with a 4-0 win against Exeter City in the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final.

The young forward has impressed in his loan stint with the Cobblers, and put in another dazzling display under the Wembley arch. The 20-year-old has managed eight goals in 12 games for Northampton, with three of his goals coming in the Play-Offs.

Keith Curle's men led through Ryan Watson's 11th-minute strike, with Morton extending their advantage just after the half-hour mark.

Early in the second half Exeter's Dean Moxey was shown a red card, which furthered Northampton's dominance and allowed late goals from Sam Hoskins and Andy Williams to wrap the game up.
