Time at Club
Gareth Ainsworth may not be the most experienced of managers working in England - joining Wycombe in September 2012 - however he incredibly finds himself as one of the longest-serving gaffers in the top-4 tiers.
The former Wycombe Wanderers midfielder become the club's caretaker player-manager early on in the 2012/13 season, before bagging the job on a permanent basis towards the end of the campaign.
In his first full season in charge of Wycombe Ainsworth kept his troops in the Football League on the final day (2013/14), before bouncing back the following season and coming agonisingly close to leading his troops to promotion - losing the play-off final on penalties. Although, on the plus side, he did scoop the LMA League Two Manager of the Year award.
Ainsworth's only other taste of life in the dugout came at ex club QPR, filling in on a caretaker basis on two occasions in 2008 and 2009.
Outside of football the long-haired Ainsworth is famed for being the lead singer of rock band Road to Eden, while he is a devout Catholic who has has a passion for poetry.
