Dowson Picked As The Man To Lead Woking's Big Rebuild

8 months ago By Sam Elliott

Alan Dowson has been unveiled as Woking’s new manager with the target of returning the club to the National League at the first attempt.

Dowson has worked wonders at Hampton & Richmond Borough in three and a half years he has been in charge.

Keeping the club to in year one, he then took the Beavers to the Ryman Premier title a season later.

Last year he secured a play-off finish before doing the same this season - the Beavers beaten only by penalties in the Promotion Final against Braintree on Sunday.

Woking enduring a miserable final few months which resulted in relegation following their decision to part company with Anthony Limbrick.

They return to the National League South after six years - and Dowson’s immediate objective is to make sure their stay in Step 2 is just a one-year one.

Other candidates for the job were reported to be Salisbury boss Steve Claridge, but it appears Dowson’s experience of the league is what convinced the Cards board to make him their man.
