Northampton boss Ian Sampson has signed new three-year contract to stay at Sixfields until June 2013.

Sampson has been in charge of the Cobblers since October 2009, and chairman David Cardoza said: "Ian has been a breath of fresh air to the club.

"Many people know that Ian is Northampton Town through and through and his commitment to the club has never been in doubt. Since he has taken over as manager he has impressed me greatly."

He added: "Our performances have improved, our results have improved, he has shown great faith in the young players here and we have seen any number of players improve and progress under his leadership."

The Cobblers are also close to agreeing a new deal with assistant boss Malcolm Crosby, and Sampson said: "Since taking over as manager last year I have been fortunate to be able to call on the experience of Malcolm Crosby and so far things have gone well for us.

"We are battling hard to try and catch the top seven and get ourselves into the play- offs this season, but whatever may happen over the last dozen or so games of the season, I have seen enough progress with the players to think that we can continue our progress beyond this season."
