Profile

Gareth Ainsworth took charge of Wycombe back in September 2012 and has since become one of the longest-serving gaffers in the top-4 tiers of English football.

The former Wycombe midfielder became 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.

Gareth Ainsworth Quotes

Losing on penalties may not be as tough as losing in normal time. I can take it. I've got a real taste for it now.


Being a football manager does terrible things to your heart, but no one gets to feel how I feel right now.


I dug deep inside, because i thought, one chink of disbelief, one chink of doubt, and someone will see right through you.
