Pen Pic

Danny Wilson began his managerial career at Barnsley in 1994 when he became player/manager. In his first season he led Barnsley to a sixth place finish in Division One (now The Championship). The following season was a disappointment as the club finished in mid-table, but the next season Wilson guided Barnsley to the Premiership as Division One runners-up.

His stay in the top flight with the Tykes lasted just 1 year before relegation, Wilson's side however reached the FA Cup quarter final knocking out favourites Manchester United on the way. He joined Sheffield Wednesday in the summer of 1998, in the 1998/99 season Wilson guided Sheffield Wednesday to a respectable 12th place in the Premiership.

Wilson was sacked the following March with the club struggling at the foot of the table. He hooked up with Bristol City in June and led them ninth then seventh and then to 2 third placed finishes, he failed to be promoted and his contract was not renewed.

In December 2004 Wilson took over as the new manager of struggling Milton Keynes Dons. In his first season, he managed to save the club from relegation but he was unable to repeat this feat as MK Dons were relegated to League Two at the end of the 2005/06 season.

On June 13, 2006, Wilson was appointed manager of Hartlepool United and he Pools to a second place finish in the 2006/07 season. He picked up 3 manager of the month awards and won the 2006/07 League Two Manager of the Year.

Wilson led Pools to a solid 15th place finish in Pools' first season back in League One but was dismissed in December 2008 after a string of bad results. He was appointed manager of League One rivals Swindon Town shortly after his departure.
