Aidy Boothroyd has returned to management with npower League Two strugglers Northampton.

The former Watford, Colchester and Coventry boss, 40, has signed a one-year rolling contract and succeeds Gary Johnson eight months after leaving the Ricoh Arena.

The deal brings to an end a two-week search for a new manager, during which time the Cobblers have been heavily beaten twice under two different caretaker bosses, David Lee and Tim Flowers.
