Northampton Town chairman Kelvin Thomas on recruitment, the sale of Charlie Goode last season and the poor form which led to manager Keith Curle's departure
Northampton Town chairman Kelvin Thomas admitted it was a difficult decision to sack manager Keith Curle, despite backing him in the January Transfer window for new signings.
Curle steered Northampton to SkyBet League One via the League Two play-off final at Wembley last June.
He lost his job following Tuesday's home defeat to Wigan, a result which left the Cobblers second from bottom in the table. They’ve yet to win so far in 2021 and have gone four games without scoring.Under-18s coach Jon Brady has been placed in caretaker charge, and will be assisted by Ian Sampson and Marc Richards.
Curle was keen to transform the squad as players adjusted to life in League One, but they spent most of the season below half way in the table.
And despite ringing the changes in January, Northampton continued to struggle for goals.
