Time at Club:
Northampton Town are managed by Rob Page who replaced Chris Wilder in the summer of 2016. Page has a huge task on his hands as the Cobblers begin life in League One following their promotion, under Wilder, last term.
Established in 1897, Northampton have been a club synonymous with the Football League and within their history they have played in most of the divisions and have certainly have some topsy-turvy times.
The Cobblers still hold the record for the shortest time taken to get promoted to the top division and relegated back down to the bottom, having achieved that feat in the space of nine years.
However, in recent years they have been associated with the lower echelons of the Football League and even though they won promotion up to League One in the 2005-2006 season, they were unable cement their place in the third tier and suffered relegation.
The club were then trapped down in League Two up until 2016 when Wilder led them back up to the third-tier after winning the fourth-tier, by a margin of 13 points.
A single draw against in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Northampton Town struggle for consistent results. Wins against Harrow Borough, Bury and Shrewsbury Town and defeats to Bolton Wanderers, Bradford City, Peterborough United, Gillingham, Peterborough United and Millwall demonstate slightly erratic form.
