Richard Dobson

Assistant Manager


Richard Dobson was appointed assistant manager of the club in June 2011, having previously held the position of head of youth at Adams Park.

He joined the club in 2007 as the head of the centre of excellence before replacing the departed Greg Heald as youth team coach later that year. 

'Dobbo' was installed as head of youth in the summer of 2008 following a successful spell in charge of the under 18s, overseeing the progress of youngsters such as Matt Phillips, Jordon Ibe and Kadeem Harris who all later turned professional. 

UEFA-A qualified coach Dobson was forced to retire from playing at the age of 25 after suffering knee damage whilst at Farnborough Town, but soon moved into coaching with Brentford's centre of excellence.
