Cobblers bring in David Lee as assistant manager

Northampton Town have appointed former Chelsea defender and Bristol City coach David Lee as assistant manager.

He made 196 appearances for Chelsea and also counted Reading, Portsmouth and Exeter amongst his eight clubs.

"He started his coaching career at Swindon before I managed to get him to Bristol City as a development coach," said boss Gary Johnson.

"He is a good coach, he is ambitious and I enjoy his company as I am sure the players will."

Johnson added: "I had to bring someone in who would fit in well with the players and the club and I am pleased we have been able to get him to Northampton Town.

"I think he will be a big asset and I am delighted to be able to appoint him as my number two."

His appointment fills the gap left by Malcolm Crosby, who departed Sixfields along with a host of players in May.
