Who is the new Bristol City manager?

Dean Holden was born on the 15th of September 1979 in Swinton, England. Holden started his playing career with Bolton Wanderers, and he made his 1st appearance in 1998, but he would only go on to make a further 12 appearances for the club in the next 4 years. During this time, he had a brief spell on loan for the 2001-02 season at Oldham Athletic, playing 23 games at the age of 22. He impressed in these 23 games and he scored 2 goals which prompted new manager, Ian Dowie of Oldham Athletic, to sign him on a permanent.

He then went on to play over 100 1st team appearances for the Latics scoring 8 times. He was a solid centre-back helped with his aggressiveness, bravery, strength and he was also technically good on the ball, which was helped with his ability to play at right-back. He then chose to move on to Peterborough United who had been relegated from League 1 to League 2 and was names as the club captain shortly after joining. His deal at Peterborough was originally a three year one, however, after 56 league appearances in two seasons, he left with one year left to join Scottish team Falkirk at the age of 25. He played for Falkirk in the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons, at 1st not really being a preferred starter in the team, but in his 2nd, he became a regular feature for most weeks. However, in January 2008 he suffered a bad leg break which kept him out of action for 9-10 months. From this point on he never managed to get a grasp back in the 1st team and so left at the end of the season.

For the 2009-10 season, Holden joined League Two side, Shrewsbury Town making a total of 37 starts and then in the 2nd year of his deal, he joined League Two rival, Rotherham United on loan. This was a failed stint as he did not make the good books of manager Ronnie Moore, so he only made 6 appearances and so the loan only lasted up until January of the 2010-11 season. It seemed, even with these failed transfers to League Two teams, he was hot property and so Chesterfield signed him in, immediately making an impact as their 1st choice centre-back. He then helped Chesterfield secure promotion to League One, but only started a 1/3 of their games in the season to come. Holden then proceeded to finish his playing career with short term deals at both Rochdale and Walsall, he retired at the age of 34.

In the year after retirement, Holden rushed back into football and became a coach at Oldham Athletic, a team he had previously played for. Just months later, the manager was sacked and so Holden took charge as interim manager just under 3 months. In this time, Holden took charge of 15 league games, winning 3, drawing 5 and losing 7 before being replaced by permanent manager Darren Kelly. On the 6th of February 2016, he re-joined his partnership with Lee Johnson, who had been the manager of Oldham when he was there as a coach, to be his assistant. He spent 4 seasons with Bristol City in the Championship, perfecting them as an established side, but unfortunately, the board wanted more from this side and so after a mid-table finish in the 2019-20 season, head coach, Lee Johnson was sacked. This did however open up an opportunity for Dean Holden to take his position and so on the 10th of August 2020, he was appointed as new manager of Bristol City.
