Jon Brady has agreed a new, improved, rolling contract as manager of Northampton Town.
Brady was appointed as the Cobblers boss initially on a temporary basis, in February 2021 before being confirmed as the permanent manager the following May. In his time in charge he has led Northampton Town to the Sky Bet League 2 play offs, automatic promotion from League 2 the following season, and currently a top ten place in Sky Bet League One.
He is already the sixth longest serving manager in the EFL and has overseen excellent progress for the Cobblers. The club are currently averaging their highest attendances for 55 years and have only finished higher than the current position five times in 58 years.
"Jon has done extremely well and we are delighted we have been able to agree this improved contract," said Chairman Kelvin Thomas.
"The club has moved forward strongly both on and off the pitch in the last three years and Jon has led that on field progress superbly. We have enjoyed some fantastic times and the progress and development of the playing squad, overseen by Jon and his staff, is clear for everyone to see.
“We had a renegotiation clause in Jon’s old contract for the end of this current season but we all felt this was a good time to bring those discussions forward and this new, improved contract is a reward for Jon and the results he has achieved.
"There is a strong connection between the club and the fans and that togetherness is certainly helped, not just by the results, but by the way we currently play. Sixfields is a great place to be on a matchday, you can really feel that togetherness that exists and we cannot overlook the crucial role Jon and his staff have and continue to play in that.”
Brady himself added, "I am thrilled to sign this new contract.
"Anyone who knows me, knows how proud I am to be the manager of Northampton Town. Together we have taken the club forward over the last few years and our challenge now is to try and continue that work.
"As I have said before, I see this town and this county as my adopted home and I am sure the fans know my passion for the club. There is a strong bond between us and that is something I am very appreciative and respectful of.
"I would like to thank the coaching staff, the Chairman, the Board of Directors and of course the players for their support, I am delighted to have signed this new contract and we are excited to see where the next steps may take us."
