Northampton Town boss Keith Curle has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

Curle recently guided the Cobblers to promotion via the League Two play-offs, beating Exeter City 4-0 in the final at Wembley.

Under his leadership, the club also reached the fourth round of the FA Cup last season - their best run in 16 years.

Curle arrived at the PTS Academy Stadium in 2018, replacing Dean Austin.

"Keith has made a huge impact and he fully deserves his new contract," said chairman Kelvin Thomas.

"In a short space of time he has instilled a real professionalism, a drive and a unity in the playing squad that supporters can really relate to and he has given the club a playing identity."

We are delighted with the progress we are making and we are looking forward to the challenge of adapting to play at a higher level under Keith.

Curle added: "We have come a long way together, both on and off the pitch, in a short space of time.

"This not the end of our journey, far from it. We are not the finished article and there is a long way to go. We are creating a platform and a foundation that will allow us to be competitive in League 1 and that is our next target."
