Adie Mann

 

After leaving the Diamonds he joined Gresley Rovers in May 1995, before spells with Raunds Town, Higham Town, Kettering Town and Bedford Town.

Aidy went into management, and his first appointment was with UCL Division One side Higham Town, where he became manager in February 1997. In his first season, he won the Championship, although promotion was not possible due to ground limitations. He left Higham in September 1999, and went one to spend two seasons in charge at Woodford United, and the 2002/2003 season at the helm of Cogenhoe United. On 21 July 2003, he became manager again at Higham Town, but in February 2004, left to become player manager at Long Buckby. He remained with the Bucks until January 2007, when he was dismissed, returning to Higham Town, and then Newport Pagnell Town as a player despite being in his forties. On 3 June 2009, he became assistant manager at Raunds Town, but following problems at Kiln Road, he left on 27 November 2009 to become manager of Rushden & Higham United, still making the odd substitute appearance at the age of 42. Shortage of players on 12 March 2013, saw him in the starting eleven at Harrowby Utd at the age of 45.
