Jacko appointed AFC Wimbledon manager
I’ve had a post entitled ‘What’s next for Jacko’ sat in my drafts for a week, and that question has been answered today after Johnnie Jackson was appointed AFC Wimbledon’s new manager. Terry Skiverton will be his assistant.
I’m really, really pleased for Jacko. There is a stat that says two-thirds of first time managers never get a second opportunity of managing a league club. It seems that what Jacko achieved in his spell as Addicks’ manager and during his time as an assistant was enough for the Wimbledon hierarchy to give Johnnie the opportunity to return the club back to L1 after five seasons there.
Jacko has signed a 2-year deal and as odd as it looks him holding a scarf of another club I wish him every bit of luck in the world.
