Swindon Town boss Ben Garner is to be the new Charlton manager. Richard Cawley of the SLP says that the deal has been agreed tonight, including the compensation paid to the Rocking Robins.
Garner will bring in Scott Marshall and Scott Lindsey who were his assistant coaches at Swindon. What this will mean for Jason Euell is unclear.
My initial reaction was that I was a bit underwhelmed, but realistically managers of the calibre of Beale or Warburton are not going to come to a League One club that finished in the bottom half of the table.
Swindon fans are unhappy. One commented: 'We give a rooky manager a chance to prove himself and he kicks us in the teeth as soon as a new opportunity presents itself.'
Garner started coaching at an early age following a serious injury and came through the ranks at Crystal Palace: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Garner
