Football News Update: Jordan Willis Extends Contract with Northampton Town

In a move that will delight Northampton Town supporters, defender Jordan Willis has agreed to a new two-year contract with the club. The 29-year-old centre-back, who joined the Cobblers as a free agent in October 2022, made a significant impact last season, appearing in 28 matches.

Willis, who began his career at Coventry City, where he amassed nearly 180 league appearances for the Sky Blues, has since enjoyed spells at Sunderland and Wycombe Wanderers before making the move to Northampton.

“Northampton boss Jon Brady expressed his satisfaction with the contract extension, highlighting Willis’ ‘calmness, presence, and experience’ as crucial factors that contributed to the team’s performance last season.”

Brady further praised the defender’s professionalism and good pedigree, emphasizing that his age is well-suited for a centre-back.

The Cobblers finished the 2022/23 League One campaign in 14th place, accumulating 60 points. The retention of Willis is seen as a crucial step in the club’s plans to build on last season’s performance and potentially challenge for a higher position in the upcoming EFL Championship.

As the football world eagerly awaits the start of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, the Champions League, and the FIFA World Cup later this year, Northampton Town fans will be delighted to see the club reinforcing its defensive ranks with the extended stay of Jordan Willis.
