Sampson Believes Jacobs Has Talent

The 18 year old midfielder signed a professional contract at Sixfields in April, having impressed for the title-chasing Youth team.

Speaking to BBC Radio Northampton, Sampson said:

“He has got talent and he’s good with the ball. He’ll be around the first 11. If they’re good enough, it doesn’t matter what age they are.”

He added: “He gets a little bit sloppy when he thinks he can beat everyone, but we’re not going to knock that out of him.”
