Who is Swindon manager Ben Garner?

Ben Garner is the newly appointed manager of Swindon.

Garner is relatively unusual in his profession in that he has not got a playing career to speak of before entering the world of management. He is one of the younger coaches in the entirety of the Football League aged 39. He took his first job way back in 2005 at the age of just 25. A devastating injury forced him to abandon his pursuit of a career as a player in favour of one as a youth coach. He held his first position as under-11 boss for a year before gradually working his way up to the under-18 team, progressing at the same rate as many of the players he had overseen, making him an ideal candidate for the job.

Garner became a first team coach at Crystal Palace in 2012 under the management of then manager Ian Holloway. Holloway's tenure at Palace, it transpired, would be markedly short-lived but Garner outlasted the man who had put him in the position he had been working towards for seven years. He stayed in the setup at Selhurst Park for another three years, earning his stripes as a senior coach of some top-notch talent including the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Yohan Cabaye amongst others.

Garner left Palace in the summer of 2015. A promising young coach and a well-liked man he won many admirers in his time there. A few months later, Garner joined West Bromwich Albion where he would spend another season homing his coaching talents. Under the wing of the West Bromwich Albion manager of the time, Garner was allowed to take control of the first team in senior matches on a number of occasions, giving him excellent experience.

In January 2019, Garner made the radical career move to join ATK in the Indian Super League. It turned out to be a relatively ill-fate venture however and he has returned to England to manage Bristol Rovers.

On 21 July 2021, Garner was appointed head coach of Swindon Town.
