Wycombe Wanderers have appointed Richard Dobson as Head of Youth.

Dobson takes over from previous incumbent Gary Karsa who moved to Colchester United earlier this season.

Richard joined the club in 2007 as head of the Centre of Excellence before moving on to manage Wycombe’s U18 side in January 2008.

Speaking to Wycombe’s official website, Dobson looked forward to the future: ‘I’m honoured to be given the role and excited by the potential we have at the club. We have a positive future to look forward to with the backing the club have given the Youth Development Department.’

Manager Peter Taylor had this to say about Dobson: ‘He deserves the post 100%. I’ve been very impressed with him since I joined the club and it’s a great move for both parties.’

Wycombe Chairman Ivor Beeks also had praise for Dobson: ‘He is so enthusiastic in what he is doing, he is a breath of fresh air. It’s a really good appointment. I’ve seen him working at Bisham Abbey with all our different age groups and he and the coaches alongside him are all really enthusiastic. We have a really good team in place.’
