The final part of our feature with Graham Carr, reflecting on his time as both a player and a manager with the club

15 May 2020

Graham Carr enjoyed significant success as both a player and a manager of Northampton Town. In our latest feature, we caught up with Graham to look back and share his memories.

In the final part of our feature, we look back on the 1987/88 season in Division 3 and the years that followed, and as an Associate Director, Graham talks about how impressed he is by current manager Keith Curle.

"We kept hold of most of the squad for Division 3," he said.

"It was a tough league with some big teams. We had a good season and it was important because we didn't want to come straight back down. I felt with another couple of additions we may have made the play offs because we did have momentum. We lost some goals from midfield when Richard Hill moved on but we battled on and did our best.

"Trevor Morley went but Tony Adcock came in and did well and we were very close to the play offs. With the County Ground being used for cricket if we did make the play offs we would have been playing at West Brom. But, we just missed out. We played at Sunderland on the Monday and had to sit and watch as we missed out on the last day of the season the following Saturday.

"As for the present day, I think Keith Curle is doing a terrific job. I think the club have done very well in the last 18 months. Keith has done well, he has a good side together and things are heading the right way."
