Get to know the new Northampton Town manager

After making his debut as a teenager in 1993, former Wales international Rob Page enjoyed a successful playing career playing over 200 times in an 8 year spell with Watford before making more than 100 appearances for Sheffield United between 2001 and 2004. 

He captained Watford in their first season in the Premier League and was voted the club's Player of the Season at the end of their debut campaign in the top flight.

He also represented Cardiff City, Coventry City, Huddersfield Town and Chesterfield in making nearly 500 senior appearances.

Page also appeared for the Wales under 18 and under 21 teams and made 41 appearances for the senior Welsh team.

He started his coaching career as the youth team coach at Port Vale. He was then promoted to first team coach before being made assistant manager.   

He was made Port Vale's interim manager in September 2014 following the departure of Micky Adams and after around a month in caretaker charge he was offered the position on a permanent basis. 

Upon guiding the Valiants to Sky Bet League One safety at the end of his first season, he was rewarded with a new 2 year contract at the club.
