Ladies seek new manager

8 April 2014

First-team boss wanted for AFC Wimbledon Ladies

AFC Wimbledon Ladies are looking for a new first-team manager to take over the reins in time for season 2014/15.

The club has announced that it has parted company with Tony Milstead after a difficult 2013/14 campaign.

An AFC Wimbledon Ladies statement said: “During the current season, AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls first-team has not managed to win a league game in the London & South East Regional Women’s Premier Division. It is therefore with regret that the Club has decided that Tony Milstead should step down as the ladies first-team manager and coach with immediate effect. On behalf of everyone at the club, we would like to thank Tony for all his support and hard work, and wish him well.”

AFC Wimbledon Ladies and Girls Chairman Dennis Lowndes and Peter Heyne jointly took charge of Sunday’s 4-0 defeat against Chalfont Wasps. Peter previously worked with the AFC Wimbledon men’s reserve team as joint team manager alongside Dave Wager in 2003.

Dennis Lowndes said that he hopes to have a new manager in place before the AFC Wimbledon Ladies and Girls trials in May.

King Georges Playing Fields, Tudor Drive, Morden, Surrey, SM4 4PN. The trials will be held between 10.00 am and 12 noon on both dates. The club will be looking for players of all ages to boost their girls and ladies squads for 2014/15 by holding trials on Saturday, 10 May, and Saturday, 17 May. The address for the trials is as follows:
