Northampton Town have further strengthened their Academy coaching infrastructure by appointing the former Cobblers, Millwall, Norwich City, Leeds United and Wales international striker Steve Morison as the club's new Professional Development Phase assistant coach.

Morison, who has announced his retirement from playing, scored 188 goals in over 600 appearances.

"Steve is another excellent appointment for us," said Chief Executive James Whiting.

"He is our new Professional Development Phase assistant coach and will be assistant to Jon Brady with our under 18 squad.

"We have a very dedicated and talented team of coaches and staff within the Academy and between them we believe we have an excellent blend of local knowledge, coaching expertise and a lot of professional game experience which gives our young players the best possible support and guidance."

Morison himself added, "I am really looking forward to the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and experience to the young players in the club's Professional Development Phase.

"Hopefully I can add further to what is already a really good set up with some excellent players within the club's Academy.

"From a personal point of view, I am looking forward to working with and learning from Jon Brady and Ian Sampson and the other coaches in what is a really strong Academy infrastructure."
