Footballers' dance workout

Players from the Northampton Town football squad have had an usual training session at a dance studio.

Members of the squad went to Unit 17 on the Rothersthorpe Avenue Industrial Estate in Northampton on Tuesday 14 December 2010.

"It was a chance for us to do something different," manager Ian Sampson told the team's website,

"Anything we can do to freshen training up is something we will look at, particularly with the bad weather around, and this helped the lads work on their co-ordination, balance and flexibility.  We are very grateful to the staff at Unit 17 for their help.  They put on a fun and entertaining work-out, and I know the lads all enjoyed the exercise."
