WILDER

Chris Wilder is currently manager of Sheffield United.

Wilder began his managerial career with Alfreton Town. He was in charge for just 27 weeks but managed to win four trophies: the Northern Counties (East) League Premier Division, the League Cup, the President's Cup and the Derbyshire Senior Cup.

After this success, he joined Halifax Town and took charge of over 300 games before joining Bury as assistant manager to Alan Knill.

During his first season with Oxford, the club just missed out on a play-off place. It was in his first full season in charge of Oxford where he enjoyed success, guiding the club to the top of the Conference for periods of the season before the Us finished in the playoffs with Luton Town, Rushden & Diamonds and York City.

Oxford then defeated Rushden & Diamonds to reach the play-off final at Wembley where they would go on to defeat York City 3-1 and secure their place back place back in The Football League.

The Us went onto enjoy a fantastic return to league football as Wilder guided the club to a positive mid-table place in 2010/11, which was their highest league finish for seven years.

Chris once again improved his side's performance in 2011/12, with Oxford finishing in 9th place in League Two which was a feat that was to be repeated the following season.

During the 2013/14 season, Wilder left Oxford to join Northampton Town. At the time of his departure from Oxford, he was the 3rd longest serving manager in English football. He went onto enjoy immediate success with The Cobblers by securing their Football League status for the 2014/15 campaign.

During his playing career, Wilder represented 11 clubs in the Football League.
