Kevin Wilson

Kevin was appointed to the manager's post at Northampton in October 1999, replacing Ian Atkins at the Cobblers' helm having been his assistant for three years.

Combining his managerial duties with an occasional appearance for the tea he guided Northampton to promotion to Division Two in his first season in charge, winning 22 of 40 games, and was rewarded with an extended contract.

He signed for Northampton on a free transfer in 1997 having played at the top level of the English game for Derby, Ipswich and Chelsea before moving on to Notts County, Bradford and Walsall.

He has earned 42 caps for Northern Ireland and scored over 200 first class goals in his twenty-two year playing career, making over 700 appearances.

After the encouraging start to his managerial career, Wilson will be hoping to take Northampton even further and having performed well in the Second Division since their promotion, there is nothing to suggest that they cannot make another step up in the near future.
