Chelsea name ex-AFC Wimbledon coach Mark Robinson as new U23 manager

Mark Robinson has been named new Chelsea U23 coach.

Robinson has spent the majority of his coaching career at AFC Wimbledon in a variety of roles, working as head of the club's academy and youth team coach before a 14-month spell in charge of the senior side.

Highly regarded for his work within youth development in particular, Robinson spent 18 years with the Dons, initially joining in 2004 and helping shape their academy setup from scratch two years after the club's reformation.

Head of youth development Neil Bath said: "We're delighted to welcome Mark to the club. He has vast experience across youth development and the senior game, which will enable the Academy to continue to develop players for the professional game.

"We are confident that Mark will fit into our way of working and that he will add great value to the development of our players both individually and as a team. We look forward to Mark starting work in pre-season."
