This is a list of notable footballers who have played for Northampton Town. The aim is for this list to include all players that have played 100 or more senior matches for the club. Other players who are deemed to have played an important role for the club can be included, but the reason for their notability should be included in the 'Notes' column.

Players are listed according to the year of their first team debut for the club, and then by order of surname. Appearances and goals are for league matches only; wartime matches are excluded.
