Who is Cambridge United’s manager?
Mark Bonner was born on the 7th of June, 1974 in Ormskirk, England and is the current head coach of Cambridge United. Bonner played football as a midfielder for clubs in the United Kingdom such as Cardiff City, Oldham Athletic, Hull City and Blackpool FC making over 350 competitive appearances over the course of his career.
Bonner came through the youth academy of Blackpool FC in 1989 where it took him 2 years to make his first team debut at the age of 17 years old. Although the side were relegated due to bankruptcy, Bonner kept on playing for his childhood club for 7 years making 178 appearances in the heart of midfield.
In 1998, Mark Bonner joined Welsh side Cardiff City on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract at Blackpool FC. He spent the 1999 season on loan to Hull, however, returned to Cardiff to make 143 appearances over the course of 6 years. During his time at Cardiff, Bonner won the 2002/03 EFL Second Division playoff which secured their promotion. He also met his wife at Cardiff where they opened a joint furniture store in Chorley following his retirement.
Bonner then signed for Oldham Athletic in 2004 before being forced to retire 2 years later due to 2 complicated surgeries on his arm. On the 9th of March 2020, Cambridge United appointed Mark Bonner as their new head coach following Colin Calderwood’s departure due to a run of poor results.
Mark Bonner will have to wait a while before he makes his managerial debut for Cambridge United as the 2019/20 EFL League Two season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The club finished in 16th place, however, the fans will hope that Bonner can guide the club to a higher finish in next year’s campaign.
