Earning the right: Robbo's story

An extensive chat with Mark Robinson after his appointment as Head Coach

19 February 2021

Following his appointment as AFC Wimbledon's Head Coach, we caught up with Mark Robinson for an in-depth chat about his life and coaching philosophies.

Having worked outside football for many years after being released as a player by Fulham, it's been a far from conventional route to the top coaching job at AFC Wimbledon, a club that is close to his heart after joining us in 2004.

The extensive 25-minute interview includes Robbo on the following:

  • Starting at Wimbledon after a chance meeting with our former youth coach Tony Wilson
  • Coaching AFC Wimbledon's Under-9s back in 2004
  • Building an academy culture that led to memorable FA Youth Cup runs
  • What it means to be appointed as Head Coach
  • His role as our Head Coach and what that entails
  • Revitalising fellow staff and players on a day-to-day basis
  • Developing an identity that will lead to prolonged success at Wimbledon
