The new Northampton assistant has managed Hibs, Nottingham Forest and most recently Cambridge United. Northampton chief executive James Whiting said of the former Tottenham Hotspur man: “We believe Colin is an excellent appointment for us. Not just for the short term but for the medium and the longer term at the club too.

“His knowledge and experience is second to none and this appointment adds to a really strong coaching and recruitment infrastructure we have put together at the club over the last few months. Colin will play an important part in taking the club forward, not just for the here and now and I think it is that challenge that really appeals to him.”
