Terry Brown

Terry Brown was most recently manager of Basingstoke Town.

Previously he was manager of Isthmian League Margate, and prior to that, AFC Wimbledon.

Brown's first job in management was with Hayes, where he was in charge for nine years between 1993 and 2002. He led the club from the brink of relegation from the Isthmian League Premier Division to third in the Football Conference.

Brown then became the manager of Aldershot in March 2002. He won the Hampshire Senior Cup in his first month in charge and in his first full season in charge, he guided the club to the Conference National.

It was an impressive first season in the Conference National for his team, with the club reaching the play-off final, narrowly missing out on a place in the Football League to Shrewsbury Town.

The following season, Brown again led his team to the play-offs but Aldershot went down to another penalty shoot out defeat, this time to Carlisle United.

During his time at AFC Wimbledon, Brown enjoyed significant success having led the club to the Football League for the first time in their history.

AFC Wimbledon were only formed in 2002 when Wimbledon FC were relocated to Milton Keynes.

Remarkably it was already the third promotion of his spell with AFC Wimbledon. The first came when Brown guided the club to a 2–1 play-off final win against Staines Town to take the club to the Conference South.

He then led the team to the to the Conference National by winning the Conference South title.

It was in the 2010/11 campaign when AFC Wimbledon won promotion to npower League Two with a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Luton Town at Eastlands.

In 2011/12, Brown comfortably secured their npower League Two status after their first ever appearance in the Football League.

He remained with the club until September 2012.
