League One club Charlton Athletic have appointed Dean Holden as their new first-team manager.

The 43-year-old former Oldham Athletic and Bristol City boss was most recently an assistant manager at Stoke.

Holden replaces Ben Garner, who was fired in early December after serving six months.

Charlton are struggling in the league and after Saturday’s home defeat by Bristol Rovers they are 18th in the table, four points above the relegation zone.

Holden will become Charlton’s 13th manager in the past 10 years and her fifth in two years.

He is one of four people appointed to senior positions at Charlton, with Andy Scott appointed Technical Director, Jim Rodwell Chief Operating Officer and Ed Warrick Chief Financial Officer.

“Dean Holden is a talented manager who is well respected in football circles. He will bring good experience and knowledge that will help us get our season going again,” said Charlton owner Thomas Sandgaard.

“I am delighted that we have been able to appoint such experienced and knowledgeable people to help us move forward.

“Each person appointed has experience at Championship level or higher and the appointments should give us the structure and stability we need to move forward as a club.”

Former defender Holden, who played for Bolton, Oldham, Peterborough, Falkirk, Shrewsbury, Chesterfield, Rochdale and Walsall during his career, joined the Potters in April 2021 working with then-manager Michael O’Neill.

He took over as interim boss after O’Neill’s sacking in August this summer, before also leaving the club shortly after Alex Neil’s appointment.

Holden was previously in charge of Bristol City for nine months and briefly held responsibilities at Oldham in 2014-15 before returning as assistant manager.

Caretaker manager Anthony Hayes will referee the team’s Carabao Cup game against Brighton on Wednesday before returning to his previous role as first-team manager.
