Northampton Town have appointed former Gillingham boss Justin Edinburgh as their new manager.
The 47-year-old takes over from Rob Page who was sacked earlier this week.
Edinburgh spent the majority of his playing career at Tottenham Hotspur, and has previously managed the likes of Rushden and Diamonds and Newport County.
He was recently dismissed by Gillingham with the club in 17th place in League One at the time.
He's agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract at Sixfields.
We spoke with a lot of managers this week and had a lot of applications, but Justin’s teams have always impressed me with the energy that they play even back to his Rushden days.
I have also spoken to a lot of people in the game and had very positive feedback. He knows how to get results especially when going into clubs.
We have talked a lot today about the squad and he is excited about starting to work with them on Monday. He thinks we have good players, that he knows well, and is confident of winning football matches with this group.
We have also talked about his time at Gillingham and why that ended, and it certainly feels like he has learnt a tremendous amount from that experience which will hopefully be to the benefit of Northampton Town Football Club.
Northampton Town have signed experienced defender Neal Eardley to help ease their injury crisis.
The Cobblers are currently short of options at right-back due to a succession of injuries to players in that position, and have now brought in Eardley on a deal until the end of the season.
The 28-year-old has moved to Sixfields on a free transfer after his contract at Scottish club Hibernian expired.
Eardley has previously played in the Premier League for Blackpool and has 16 senior caps for Wales to his name.
With the Cobblers currently without a manager following the sacking of Rob Page earlier this week, the move was sanctioned by Chief Executive James Whiting.
With Brendan Moloney and Aaron Phillips currently unavailable through injury and Paul Anderson also sustaining an injury last weekend it become a priority to sign a right back ahead of this weekend’s game.

Luton Town have signed midfielder Lawson D'Ath for an undisclosed fee from League One side Northampton Town.
The 24-year-old has agreed an 18-month contract with the Hatters, following two-and-a-half seasons at Sixfields.
The former Reading player helped the Cobblers win promotion last season, scoring four times for the club.
Manager Nathan Jones told the official Hatters website, "He is a player I know very well; a young player but with real good League experience, including a promotion last year with Northampton. He’ll add real quality and energy to our squad, and we’ve managed to sign him on what could turn out to be a two-and-a-half year contract.”
