Mark Bowen named AFC Wimbledon boss until end of season


FC Wimbledon have appointed Mark Bowen as their new manager until the end of the season.

The former Reading boss will be assisted by Eddie Niedzwiecki as he attempts to overturn the Dons’ struggling survival bid, which has seen them go 20 games without a win.

“I am deeply honored to have been offered this position,” Bowen told the Dons website.

“I fully understand what is at stake and what needs to be done in the remaining seven games. Take my word for it, we will all do everything we can to keep this proud club in Ligue 1.”

Mark Robinson was sacked on Monday with Wimbledon 21st and a point from safety. Bowen will be in charge for the first time when the team travel to Sheffield on Wednesday on Saturday.

Acting Chairman Mick Buckley said: “We are delighted to welcome such experienced and respected coaches to this stage of the season.

“Mark understands the enormity of the task at hand. In many ways, it says a lot about his character and personality that he’s up for this challenge with so much at stake.

“We can only do everything we can to support him until the end and I’m confident that’s exactly what our fans will do on Saturday and our next home game against Charlton on Tuesday.”
