BioNeil Baker became joint-manager of Slough Town on 28 May 2013, moving with Jon Underwood from Godalming Town after guiding the 'Gs' to a third-placed finish in the Southern League Division One Central.
Neil started his career at Wycombe Wanderers under John Gregory, before moving to Farnborough, the club his father Keith also represented over 400 times. Neil went on to play for Aldershot Town, Boreham Wood, Sutton United, Leatherhead and Bracknell Town.
After a knee injury forced him into retirement at just 29, Neil made the move into management, joining Fleet Spurs in the Wessex League Division One, where he was first team manager for two seasons.
Neil then made the switch to Godalming during the 2010/11 season, linking up with Underwood and enjoying a successful spell which culminated in reaching the Isthmian Division One South playoffs and beating Sutton United to lift the Surrey Senior Cup in 2012/13.
Baker and Underwood also led Godalming to the Isthmian Division One South playoffs in 2011/12, and the Fourth Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, where they narrowly lost out against Maidenhead United.
At Slough, Baker guided the club to promotion to the Southern League, Premier Division after a thrilling 3-2 victory at Kettering Town in the Playoff Final. In 2016/17, the Rebels went close to winning promotion to National League South, but were defeated 1-0 in a Playoff Semi-Final at Leamington. The following season, Baker reached the First Round of the FA Cup for the first time as a manager - and his side cruised to a 6-0 win at National League North Gainsborough Trinity, setting up a Second Round tie at home to League One Rochdale.
