The former Republic of Ireland and Queen’s Park Rangers midfielder previously led The Shots into the Football League in 2008 as he won the Blue Square Premier title with a then-record total of 101 points. Having taken The Shots into the Football League in his first season, Aldershot Town finished 15th in League Two and had risen to sixth when, after two-and-half-years at the EBB Stadium, Gary was appointed manager of Wycombe Wanderers. Following a spell as Head of Coaching at MK Dons, Gary was appointed Head Coach at Oxford United and, in 2014, Assistant Manager and then Caretaker Manager at Portsmouth. He joined Barnet last year but now returns to management with the club where he made his name.
