Elected to the Southern League in 1901, Northampton joined the League as Swindon were at their lowest ebb - after beating the Town 3-1 at the County Ground in the clubs' first ever encounter, the Cobblers humiliated them further in the return fixture, winning by eight goals to nil, with former Town player Herbert Chapman scoring twice. After a spell at Tottenham, Chapman returned to Northampton to start his managerial career in 1907 - and he quickly turned them around from finishing bottom in the season before he joined, to champions in 1909, finishing six points ahead of the Town, who had also experienced an upturn in fortunes since the first meetings, to finish in second place. Two seasons later, the roles were reversed - Swindon winning their first championship, five points clear of the Cobblers.

Northampton played a part in the Town's first ever relegation, in 1964/65 - going into the final day of the season, Swindon and Portsmouth were tied on 33 points at the bottom of the table, and Northampton were already assured of promotion to Division One, though providing other results went their way, they still had a chance of winning the championship. Pompey had to travel to Northampton on the final day - but bizarrely, the kick-off was scheduled for the evening - Swindon meanwhile had to travel to Southampton to try to save themselves from the drop. When the Town lost 2-1 at the Dell, and with Newcastle sealing the championship earlier in the day, Portsmouth knew they only needed a point to avoid relegation themselves, and Northampton now had nothing to play for. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw, and the Town dropped back down to the third tier, two years after their first promotion.


 

Days after his sacking, and after protests by supporters and players, Lou Macari is reinstated as Town boss.
