Time at Club:
Northampton Town are managed by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink who replaced Justin Edinburgh on 4th September 2017. Edinburgh had been the first manager from the top-4 tiers to los his job in 2017/18 after he was sent packing after the Cobblers lost each of their opening four games.
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 Chris Wilder led them back up to the third-tier after winning the fourth-tier, by a margin of 13 points.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Northampton Town collect wins versus Plymouth Argyle & Bury while suffering adverse results at Lincoln City, Walsall, Blackpool, Peterborough United & Charlton Athletic. Draws against Wycombe Wanderers, Carlisle United & Oldham Athletic has seen them show mid-table form at best.
