Fancy being a Football League manager? Well AFC Wimbledon want to hear from you!

The League Two club have taken the novel step of advertising their vacant managerial job on their website.

The Wombles sacked Terry Brown on Wednesday and are now looking for people to email in their CVs if they think they are up to the task.

The requirements they are looking for in their new boss are:

  • a track record of success in the game
  • excellent motivational and people management skills
  • a clear vision of how they can deliver success on and off the pitch for the club
  • a track record of developing young players

If you think you are suitable for the job get your CV into the club no later than Tuesday 25 September.

Worried about you current employer being annoyed about you applying for another job? Never fear, AFC Wimbledon insist that: "Applications will be treated in confidence."

Brown meanwhile, insisted he bore no grudges and remains an AFC Wimbledon fan despite his sacking.

The man who guided Wimbledon into the Football League was axed after more than five years in charge following a run of six defeats in seven matches.

"I really feel as a manager that you have a timespan at a club, unless you are someone like Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger and can continually be successful," he said.

"There comes a point when it is time to move on and maybe a club needs someone else.

"I may have a heavy heart at the moment, but I will be at Wycombe on Saturday supporting the boys.

"The fans have been absolutely fantastic to me as they were even singing my name when things were not going well and it looked like I would be leaving.

"I will still look for Wimbledon's results and will still come and visit even if I find another club.

"It is not a time for being despondent about leaving the club, it is time to remember the fantastic times we have had here."
