Northampton Town have appointed the former Watford assistant manager Dean Austin as the club's new assistant manager.
As a player, Austin made more than 450 senior appearances, playing more than 100 times for both Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace.
Austin began his coaching career as Head of Recruitment and coach at Southend United in 2005, helping the Shrimpers win two successive promotions to move from League 2 to the Championship.
He moved on to become assistant manager to Brendan Rodgers at Watford and followed Rodgers to Reading.
Highly thought of by Watford supporters for his role at Vicarage Road, he returned to the club in January 2015, helping Slaviša Jokanovic's side to win promotion back to the Premier League.
Following Dean's arrival at Sixfields, David Kerslake has left the club and the club would like to place on record its thanks to David and wish him well for the future.
