Justin Edinburgh is back in management with Northampton Town, bagging the job in January 2017, 10 days after he was sacked by Gillingham.

Edinburgh, who previously led the Exiles up into the Football League for the first time in 25 years, went on to steer the Gills clear of the relegation zone and up into 12th spot. The 2015/16 season started off as a huge success, with the Gills eyeing up promotion to the Championship, however they tailed off at the end.

Justin Edinburgh Quotes

You need to have an ambition to try and over achieve and that's the task we'll set to the players. If you do that then you're going to be successful.

Your philosophy has got to be winning football matches with a certain style, but winning breeds confidence, and any person that has played football knows that plays a major part in the way you play.

The Sack Race's Opinion

Justin Edinburgh proved in his time at Newport County that he has the ability to get the best out of his teams, gaining promotion in 2013. At Gillingham originally enhanced his credentials, but a poor run of form during the 2016/17 season saw him lose his job. However, he's now back in the dugout with Northampton.
