Justin Edinburgh says he's ‘delighted and honoured’ to be Northampton Town's new manager.Read the full story ›
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.
