Terry Brown has been sacked by AFC Wimbledon following a poor start to the season. The Dons lost 1-0 at home to Torquay on Tuesday night and the club decided enough was enough and will now start searching for a new manager.
An accomplished Non League footballer, Terry Brown then became a player coach at Wokingham Town before gaining his first managerial post in 1993 at Hayes, who were languishing in the lower depths of the Isthmian League Premier Division.
In the space of nine years, however, Brown manager to pull them away from the relegation zone to as high as third in the Football Conference. But, money problems caused his departure and having applied for the vacant Aldershot Town position, Brown parted company with Hayes and went to the Shots.
A couple of play-off defeats as manager, Brown couldn't quite get the Shots out of the Conference and he took charge of his last game in March 2007, but it wasn't long before he was back in football, taking over the Wimbledon job two months later.
Promoted from the Conference South in his first season, Brown was an instant hit with the fans and having finished runners-up in the 2010-2011 in the Conference managed to gain promotion to League Two via the play-offs. This would prove to be the biggest achievement in the club's short history and Brown was certainly an integral cog to the promotion-winning team.
