The club competed on the Midland League for two seasons before joining the Southern League in 1901. In 1908/09, they were crowned Southern League champion and were eventually admitted into the Football League in 1920, where they would spend the next 38 years competing in the Third Division South.
Northampton then became founder members of the Fourth Division; promotion in 1960/61 followed by a Third Division title in 1962/62 led them to the Second Division, where they were promoted again in 1964/65 and completed the climb to the top-flight in five seasons. However, they were immediately relegated from the First Division and that remains the club’s only top-flight appearances in its history.
From then on, the Cobblers have bounced between the third and fourth tiers of English football. Tommy Fowler holds the record for most appearances, featuring 552 times for the club between 1946 and 1961. Meanwhile, Jack English remains Northampton’s all-time top goalscorer, netting 143 times between 1947 and 1959.
