The new manager
Paul Tisdale was born on 14 January 1973 in Valletta, Malta. A former England schools international, he came through the youth system at Southampton, signing as a professional in June 1991. He was loaned out to Northampton Town in February and March 1993, where he made five league appearances.
   He eventually made his Southampton debut in a League Cup game against Huddersfield Town on 5 October 1994 but because of a run of managers being sacked he never got a regular place in the first team.
   In August 1997 he signed for Bristol City but left after just one year, and played abroad for both FinnPa in Finland and Panionios in Greece before returning to England to spend a year with Yeovil Town.
   Injury forced him to end his playing career early, and he took a coaching role with non-league University of Bath club Team Bath in 2000. Tisdale entered the side into the 2002–03 FA Cup,  becoming the first university team to enter the competition since 1881. Team Bath advanced through four qualifying rounds to the first round proper, before losing to Mansfield Town. At Team Bath, Tisdale led the club through four promotions in non-league football.
   During the summer of 2006, Tisdale left Bath to take up the vacant manager's position at then Conference National side Exeter City. In his first season he led the club to their first playoff finish, just missing out on promotion after losing the final 2–1 to Morecambe.
   After another playoff finish and a 1–0 final victory over Cambridge United on 18 May 2008  Exeter were promoted to the Football League and Tisdale signed a new two-year rolling contract with the club. Under his guidance the club continued their impressive form with a second-place finish and promotion to League One and Tisdale becoming the first Exeter City manager in their history to lead the club to back-to-back promotions. The 2011–12 season however, concluded Exeter City's short stay in League with relegation to League Two following a 23rd-place finish.
  Tisdale was appointed manager of MK Dons on 6 June 2018 after they were relegated to League Two. After a near-perfect month which saw the club gain 16 points from a possible 18, he was named League Two Manager of the Month for October 2018 by the EFL 
   Tisdale went on to lead the Dons to automatic promotion back to League One at the first attempt, achieving a third-place finish but following a poor start to the 2019–20 season in which the club won only one point from a possible 27 – the worst run of results in its short history – Tisdale's contract was mutually terminated on 2 November 2019 following a 1–3 home defeat to Tranmere Rovers.
   Tisdale went to school in Bath, where he was childhood friends with The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln. In 2017, Lincoln said: "One of my oldest and dearest friends happens to be Paul Tisdale, so I've been watching him very avidly throughout his whole career and I've been very proud of him." Tisdale's uncle is James Faulkner, who played Randyll Tarly in Game of Thrones.

1-0 victory over Mansfield Town at Stadium:MK on 4 May 2019 secured third place and automatic promotion
