Where is Marcus Gayle now?

After returning to the newly formed AFC Wimbledon, Marcus Gayle hung up his boots after helping them win promotion to the Conference South in 2008.

Starting his career in 1988 with Brentford, he went onto make nearly 700 first team appearances for six professional clubs as well as winning 18 caps for the Jamaica national side and playing for them in the 1998 FIFA World Cup.

Upon retiring from playing Gayle stayed on at AFC Wimbledon where he enjoyed a successful spell as reserve team coach until May 2012 when he was appointed manager of Conference South side Staines Town.

After two and a half years at the club he resigned after a run of 17 defeats in 21 games.

In 2015 Gayle graduated from the “On the Board” programme which is designed to help players and others involved in football to progress from the pitch to the boardroom.

Not long after he graduated, he was appointed as the FA board member for the Berks & Bucks Football Association – a post which he held for a year.

He now works as a coach and mentor at the Full Time Football academy which is a training performance camp providing football coaching and mentoring experience for semi-professional and professional football players.

A member of Brentford’s hall of fame, Gayle has kept close links with the club and works for them as a matchday co-commentator and club ambassador.
