It's a new chapter for Northampton Town who sack Rob Page

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 09 January 2017, 10:45

Northampton Town have become the third Football League club in 24 hours to sack their manager after parting ways with Rob Page, who lasted less than eight months in the dugout.

The decision comes after Saturday’s 5-0 hammering at Bristol Rovers - the club’s eighth defeat in 10 league games - which left the Cobblers 16th in League One.

In the aftermath of the thumping at Rovers Page was criticised for his “men against girls” comment during an interview with BBC Radio Northampton - Listen Here - something for which he later apologised for after being slammed on social media.

Page only took charge of Northampton back in May, replacing the departed Chris Wilder who opted to move to Sheffield United after leading the Cobblers to the League Two title.

The Northamptonshire side remarkably drew their opening seven league and cup games (in 90minutes) under Page, before finally claiming their first league triumph in early September. A mixed run of form followed, however the club have struggled since November, losing 10 of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

As a result the Welshman has been sent packing, with Paul Wilkinson taking temporary charge of the first team. The likes of Kenny Jackett, Neil Redfearn and David Flitcroft currently feature in the Next Northampton Town Manager Market - click on the link to place your bet.
