ANDREW VORCE - Tuesday, April 13, 2010
After a relatively quiet opening campaign for League Two's Northampton Town, American striker Seb Harris is hoping that his hard work will end in his eventual stay at the club.

Without grabbing headlines or making a big move, Harris quietly put in the work to secure a spot on the top 18 at the English outfit.

Instead of trying to jump straight into first team action, Harris kept his nose down to work his way from the fringes of the squad and into a regular bench feature.

All of his hard work eventually paid off, working his way into more and more substitute appearances. Harris got his big moment in February, grabbing the game winner against Cheltenham.

"It was a great feeling," he described to YA.

His goal celebration, after netting for the first time in his professional career, proved how great of a moment it was for him, running to the touch side line and sliding in front of the fans.

With a goal under his belt, and countless hours of work, he hopes his drive has not gone unnoticed.

"[My contract] is up at the end of the season but hopefully they will talk to me to sign again," Harris said. "Just crossing my fingers and hoping I did enough!

I would enjoy staying longer to play for the Cobblers."

Harris continued his mark of a substitute role this weekend, but was unable to direct a late game header on goal. He and the Cobblers will be looking to set things right when they travel to Rotherham on Tuesday.
