Sky Bet League One side Northampton Town have confirmed that they have parted company with manager Rob Page. Chairman Kelvin Thomas has cited that the ‘recent run of results’ was the reason for coming to this decision.
The Cobblers sit 15th in the league table after 26 matches. Out of their last ten league games, eight have resulted in defeats and two victories. In addition to this, they were knocked out of the FA Cup by non-league Stourbridge and lost on penalties to the West Ham Under-23s in the Checkatrade Trophy. This makes it ten losses in their last 12. The 5-0 away defeat to Bristol Rovers on Saturday proved to be the final nail in the coffin for former Welsh international defender Page.
A statement released on the official club website from Thomas states that the club were ‘disappointed’ to have to come to this decision but felt ‘a change is necessary’,
