Northampton Town have announced they have parted company with manager Justin Edinburgh.

In a statement on the club's website Chairman Kelvin Thomas said:

“Justin did a good job for us in difficult circumstances and achieved what was asked of him when he came in last season by retaining our League 1 status, for which we will always be grateful.

“However results overall haven’t gone as well as any of us would have liked, but Justin is an honest and hard working individual and we wish him well for the future."

Edinburgh won just six of his 26 games in charge of the Cobblers, drawing six games and losing 14. He only joined the club in January, taking over from Robert Page.

Northampton are currently bottom of League One and have lost all their matches in the league so far.
