Experienced keeper joins backroom staff

2 August 2018

Northampton Town have appointed the former Tottenham, Watford, Crystal Palace, QPR, Oldham, Millwall and Stevenage goalkeeper Chris Day as the club's new goalkeeping coach.

Day, who made over 450 senior appearances in a 13 year career as a player, was a hugely popular figure at his last club, Stevenage where he combined coaching with playing.

"I am really pleased to be able to add Chris to the backroom staff," said manager Dean Austin.

"He is someone I know well and who is ideally placed to be able to pass on his wealth of experience to the talented goalkeepers we have at the club.

"He enjoyed a fine career as a player and he will be an important figure for us and a key member of our backroom staff."

The move means that Northampton Town part company with Jim Hollman. Hollman, who lives in South Wales, is set to move to a club closer to home.

"We part on good terms with Jim but I think this change make sense on a whole host of levels," said manager Dean Austin.

"We thank Jim for his work and wish him well for the future."
