Martin Foyle moving on to take up dual coaching and recruitment role elsewhere

3 November 2021

Having worked with the club and the new recruitment committee through the summer transfer window, Northampton Town Football Club can confirm the departure of Martin Foyle.

Foyle is now expected to take up a combined recruitment and coaching role linking up with a former manager elsewhere.

"This move was not unexpected due to the opportunity for additional coaching responsibilities for Martin," said Chief Executive James Whiting.

"We wanted someone like Martin for the summer transfer window to work as part of our new recruitment committee structure and that worked well. We are now planning for the medium and longer term and, as things evolve, that is a key part of the recruitment committee's work.

"We feel we had a good summer of recruitment, and the contacts and experience of the likes of Jon Brady, Colin Calderwood and Graham Carr with other members of the committee was key to helping with that. We are very pleased with how the committee is working and we will be looking to make an appointment in due course of an individual who we feel will be best placed to continue that progress as the committee’s work evolves.

"We wish Martin well in his new role."
