List of Northampton Town F.C. managers

This is a list of Northampton Town F.C. managers. Their first manager was Arthur Jones, who was appointed in 1897. There have been a total of 35 managers appointed to the role on a permanent basis and a further four have taken the position in a caretaker role. The vast majority have been English and the club had not hired a manager from outside of the United Kingdom and Ireland until 2017. Many of the managerial changes have taken place in recent years including seven different managers between 2001 and the present day.

Dave Bowen is the club's most successful manager so far, taking the club to the First Division for the only time. Herbert Chapman was in charge during the Cobblers's crown of the Southern Football League in 1908–09 and also the runners-up spot in the Charity Shield that proceeded the title.
