Experienced keeper joins in a coaching capacity but is registered to play if required
Northampton Town are pleased to announce former Sheffield United, QPR, Leeds United and Republic of Ireland keeper Paddy Kenny as the club's new goalkeeping coach.
Kenny will also be registered as a player at Sixfields, is the latest addition to Rob Page's backroom staff.
38 year old Kenny has made more than 600 appearances in an 18 year playing career and his primary role at Sixfields will be coaching the club's goalkeepers.
"Paddy will be a fantastic addition to our staff," said manager Rob Page.
"He is a very experienced goalkeeper who has a wealth of knowledge to pass on and I know the keepers here will benefit from his work.
"We played together at Sheffield United and I know all about the qualities he brings and the experience he can pass on.
"There aren't many keepers with his depth and range of experience and with his energy and enthusiasm I think he will be a fantastic influence to our keepers.
"He will also be registered to play for us if required as he is still a high class keeper. He has kept himself fit and sharp but his main role will be to coach, but having three goalkeepers is always going to be an advantage with the new loan regulations.”
The club would also like to thank Carl Muggleton for his efforts as goalkeeping coach and can confirm that he has left the club following the end of his contract. We wish him the best of luck in the future.
