The Northampton Town Academy have strengthened their backroom staff with the appointment of former Lincoln City, Peterborough United, Leyton Orient and Colchester United defender Simon Clark as the club’s new Lead Youth Development Phase coach, overseeing the development of players in the Northampton Town Academy from the age of 13 to 16.

As a player, Clark made nearly 300 senior appearances, while as a coach, Clark, who has the UEFA A qualification, joined the Lincoln City Centre of Excellence in 2007 before becoming the Peterborough United Centre of Excellence co-ordinator.

He returned to Lincoln City as youth team coach, later becoming first team coach before having a spell in caretaker charge of the Lincoln City first team.

He has since managed in non-league football (latterly with Worksop Town and King’s Lynn Town) and Head of Academy Kieran Scarff is delighted to welcome Simon to the club.
