He said of his Northampton appointment: “I am really pleased to be rejoining the club and I am hoping to be able to help all departments move forward, but the initial focus will clearly be on the first team. I have learned a lot in the years since I was last at the club and hopefully I can put all of that experience to good use.

“The situation here is similar to the situation I arrived in at Blackpool in working with a talented young manager. I have spoken with Jon Brady a number of times, that relationship will build quickly and I am really looking forward to working with him and the rest of the coaching staff.

“I would like to thank everyone at Blackpool. We enjoyed a fantastic eight or nine months and I wish everyone well going forward. I am really excited to be joining Northampton Town and I can’t wait to get started.”
