Next Northampton Manager Odds

Danny Cowley Lincoln

Jon Brady

Following Keith Curle’s departure from Northampton Town, Jon Brady has been appointed as caretaker manager at the club but got off to a poor start, losing 2-0 at home to bottom of the league Burton Albion in his first game in charge.

Hailing from Australia, Brady is a relatively unknown candidate having spent most of his playing career in non-league football, but he has had six years experience at Brackley Town and was the most successful manager in the club’s history before being appointed as Northampton's U16 coach and then being promoted to U18 coach in 2017.

Brady has made no secret of his desire to take the job on a permanent basis but will need results in his next couple of games if he is to prove that he is not out of his depth at League One level.

Brady has moved to the favourite at 5/2 to become the next Northampton manager.

Sol Campbell

Sol Campbell has a history of taking over teams that are in a relegation battle, having previously managed Macclesfield Town and Southend United. The ex-England international was successful in his first job as he kept Macclesfield up on the final day of the season to remain in the Football League, however, he struggled at Southend last season, winning just 17.4% of his games in charge, before the season was cut short and Southend were relegated into League Two.

Campbell has been linked with a number of jobs this season, but it is difficult to see what level of job he believes he should be offered due to his success as a footballer. In such a tight league at the bottom of the table, Northampton presents Campbell the perfect opportunity to prove himself as a manager, by keeping the Cobblers in League One.

Campbell is 5/1 to take the helm at Northampton.

Matt Gray

Matt Gray could be in line to make his first foray into Football League management, Gray is the current Sutton United manager and has made huge progress with his team so far this season as the U’s sit second in the National League, with three games in hand on leaders Torquay United. Sutton finished 15th last season under Gray’s leadership but now look like serious promotion contenders.

Gray has previously worked as an assistant manager at Eastleigh as well as in League Two with Aldershot Town and Crawley Town. The opportunity to manage at League One level would likely prove to be too tempting for Gray to turn down but whether or not Northampton would be prepared to offer the role to an unproven manager, in such an important season for the club, make Gray an outsider - he is 6/1 to become the next Northampton manager.

Danny Cowley

If the criteria are for a proven manager at League One and League Two level, then Northampton needn’t look further than Danny Cowley. After well-publicised success with Lincoln City, which saw Danny and Nicky Cowley take the Imps from the National League to the top of League one, with an incredible FA Cup run along the way.

The Cowley brothers then jumped at the opportunity to manage Championship side Huddersfield Town, where they secured safety for the Terriers, before being harshly sacked. We doubt Danny Cowley would be prepared to lower his ambitions to manage at the bottom of League One, rather than wait for a higher reputation job, but with Cowley's clear love for the game at the lower levels, we wouldn’t put it past him, and it would certainly be a strong appointment for the Cobblers.

Cowley is now priced at 8/1 to get the role with Northampton.
