Cobblers boss Jon Brady says he is 'really excited' for the club's future following the recent structural changes.

Chairman Kelvin Thomas confirmed on Wednesday that the club are to set up a new committee made up of Ian Sampson (academy manager), Graham Carr (advisory role), the first-team manager and a soon-to-be-appointed head of recruitment.

Brady has worked in several roles during his five years at the club and believes these changes will make for a brighter future following their relegation back to League Two.

"I think this is really brave and it will connect the club from top to bottom," said Brady.

"We're all really excited about it to have a DNA and a philosophy running through the club and that goes with recruitment and with everything.

"It's also important to have good people who are local and who really care about the club's interests because they only want to see the club do well and they will do everything to help with that.

"I am excited about the future of this football club, I really am."

However, despite Thomas confirming talks have been held over the manager's position, Brady is not yet ready to commit himself to the full-time role.

"I've been involved in all the conversations and I think it's excellent news for the club going forward," he added.

"It can only be good for the club all over and it will strengthen us first and foremost and you've got to commend the chairman for coming out and being so positive after what's happened.

"With me, yes, there have been talks, but that's all it is at the moment."
