Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink linked with Northampton Town

Northampton Town are the first team in the top-4 tiers to open up the search for a new manager following the sacking of Justin Edinburgh, who was axed just four league games into the season.

It’s early days in the Next Northampton Manager Market, but already a host of gaffers have been hurled into contention in the betting, including the likes of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Steve Cotterill, Steve Clarke, David Kerslake, Steve Clarke and Steven Pressley.

It’s simply a case of take your pick at this stage, with Alan Curbishley the only major absentee from the market!

Hasselbaink certainly makes for interesting reading. The Dutchman memorably led Burton to the League Two title in 2014/15, before leaving for QPR the following season when the Brewers were at the summit of League One. However, JFH didn’t enjoy the best of spells with the R’s, and has been out of work since losing his job back in November.

Alongside JFH in the betting we have Northampton’s current caretaker boss Kerslake who has zero managerial experience, apart from a brief spell as Cardiff caretaker following the departure of Malky Mackay.

Elsewhere, the former West Brom and Reading boss Steve Clarke, ex Fleetwood Town gaffer Steven Pressley and the current Mansfield manager Steve Evans also feature, while Nigel Adkins is a 20/1 outsider, alongside Gareth Ainsworth and Neal Ardley.
