Who Will Be The Next Cambridge United Manager

A list of the potential candidates should the job become available based on previous people appearing in the betting odds when the position was vacant last time, to others who have a profile that would fit the club in terms of the last few managers they have had. 

Barry Corr

Cambridge fans will know Corr, having played for the club between 2015 and 2019. He has now stepped up to be the U's caretaker boss on two occasions. It remains to be seen if he wants or is offered the position permanently.  

Michael Duff

Image: bbc-sport

Michael Duff was sacked by Swansea City after just six months in the position when results and the style of play did not meet expectations. Before that December 2023 dismissal, he had successful periods at both Cheltenham Town and Barnsley.  

Gareth Ainsworth 

Image: andrew matthewsAinsworth is most associated with Wycombe Wanderers, where he spent 11 seasons. His side won two promotions in 2018 and 2020, the latter taking the Chairboys into the heady environs of the Sky Bet Championship. In 2023, he was appointed to manage Queens Park Rangers, a club he had played for. The return could have gone better as his attacking style left Rangers too open at the back, with his side only winning five of twenty-eight games. He was sacked in October of the same year.   

Damian Duff

The second Duff on our list is the former Newcastle, Chelsea and Republic of Ireland winger Damian Duff. He is currently managing League of Ireland club Shelbourne FC but is regularly quoted for managerial vacancies in the UK. 

Gary Rowett

Image: BBC/PA Media

Gary Rowett is renowned for his tactical acumen and ability to revitalize teams. Rowett enjoyed a solid playing career as a defender before transitioning into management. He has managed multiple clubs, including Birmingham City, Derby County, and Stoke City, often stabilizing them with his pragmatic approach to the game.

Ian Burchnall

Ian Burchnall has experienced a stop-start managerial career. He has had four permanent positions ( Viking, Ostersund, Notts County and Forest Green Rovers), but most recently, he has been an assistant manager (Anderlecht) and first-team coach (Wolverhampton Wanderers). 

Kevin Betsy

The 45-year-old Betsy worked with the England youth teams and Arsenal Under 23 before being appointed to his first managerial position at Crawley Town. Unfortunately, his record of W3 D4 L9 was not good enough to keep him at the League 2 club longer than four months. In June 2023, Betsy joined the U's as assistant head coach. 

Lee Bowyer

 Image: Sky Sports

The Canning Town-born midfielder moved into management with his former team, Charlton Athletic, in 2018. He spent three years there and secured promotion to the Championship in 2019.  Unfortunately, the club only lasted one season in the higher tier, and they were relegated back down to League One. Bowyer left the club in March 2021. He moved to Birmingham City, but the results could have been better, and with the club seemingly going nowhere and with no definable style, he was sacked in July 2022. In a real left-field move, Bowyer was appointed to manage the Montserrat National team in September 2023. The Caribbean side plays in the CONCACAF federation. 

Matt Taylor 

Image: ITVMatt Taylor's first managerial position was at Exeter City, where his team was League 2 runners-up in the 2021-22 season. He spent over four years with the Grecians before moving on to Rotherham United, who were now in the EFL Championship. In November 2023, with the team struggling, Taylor was relieved of his position. In December 2023 he was appointed manager at Bristol Rovers. 


Kevin Nolan

Image: West Ham United

After playing over 500 games, half of which was for Bolton Wanderers, he joined Leyton Orient as player-manager. Fourteen games in, he was replaced by Andy Hessenthaler by the owners. He moved on to League 2 club Notts County in 2017 again as a player-manager and was offered a permanent managerial contract in the East Midlands. After a poor start in the 2018-19 season, he was dismissed. Since then, he has assisted David Moyes at West Ham United. 

Michael Jolley

Image: BBC

The Cambridge University graduate featured in the bookies betting market ahead of Mark Bonner being appointed. He has managed Grimsby Town and Barrow in England and is currently with Spanish fourth tier side Velez CF.  

Paul Tisdale

Image: skysports

Tisdale has a decent track record having managed Exeter City, MKD, Bristol Rovers and Stevenage. He has gained promotion with two of those four clubs - (Exeter City 2009 & MKD 2019). His time at Stevenage and its proximity to Cambridge means the bookies will include his name for any vacancies that now arise.
