Bassey, who spent 17 years with now SkyBet League One side, AFC Wimbledon, joins the club as first team coach and will lead the Bees in the immediate future, starting with Saturday's trip to Maidenhead United, whilst the club continue to re-build the backroom staff ahead of the next campaign.

 

Anderson, who has previously managed the Dons as well, has extensive knowledge of the local non-League scene, has come into support Bassey as an assistant coach, he will also work with the club`s goalkeepers.

 

Following a playing career that saw Bassey represent the likes of Aldershot Town, Crawley Town and AFC Wimbledon, the 45-year-old retired from the playing side due to injury.

 

Bassey then stepped into the coaching side at the Dons, where he spent 14 years as firstly reserve team manager before taking on the role of first team coach, playing an instrumental part in the Dons` meteoric rise through the leagues before they established themselves within the Football League.

 

Bassey worked under a variety of different managers during his time with AFC Wimbledon, before departing at the end of the 2018/19 season

 

Bassey also took over as caretaker at AFC Wimbledon on two occasions but is hailed as a club `legend` at the League One side for his fantastic work in ensuring the development of the club formed back in the early 2000s.

 

Bassey's experience in coaching and development means that his arrival looks to be a shrewd move by the Bees. Bassey also knows the non-league scene and has excellent contacts within the game, which will support the rebuild of the First Team Squad heading into the 2021/22 National League season.

 

Anderson is best known to have managed AFC Wimbledon during a three-year spell between 2004 and 2007, where achieved promotion in his first campaign, as well as winning the Surrey Senior Cup.

 

The Ulsterman played an instrumental part in Bassey's transition from playing into coaching, appointing him as reserve team manager of the Dons.

 

Anderson enjoyed two runs to the play-offs with the Dons, before departing the club in 2007.

 

Since then, Anderson has enjoyed a coaching career, of varying roles, within the local non-League scene and has extensive knowledge of non-League football and the players within it.

 

Before heading into coaching, Anderson had a youth playing career at Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, also representing Northern Ireland at 'B' and Youth levels.
