Biography

Appointed in October 2006, Johnson (better known as Drax) had a long and distinguished non league career as a striker including spells at Aldershot, Chesham, Dulwich and Wealdstone.

He began coaching at Chesham and then became joint manager alongside Naz Bashir at Yeading. Took sole control at The Warren in December 2001 and silverware followed with an Isthmian League Cup win in 2003. This was followed by back to back Championship titles as Yeading swiftly moved up the Isthmian League and into the Conference South.

At the same time Drax sprang to national prominence when Yeading lost to Newcastle United live on BBC TV in the FA Cup 3rd Round in January 2005, a loss that was compensated by a double County Cup win at the end of the season.

Drax brought FA Cup glory to Maidenhead almost as soon as he arrived at York Road, taking the club to a first round appearance for the first time in 25 years, he then set about winning promotion at the first attempt which was achieved via the playoffs following an amazing late season run of victories.

In April 2008 Drax won the Blue Square South Manager of the Month award for an unbeaten run which saved the Magpies from relegation.

Twelve months later Drax led United to their highest ever league finish of sixth place in the Blue Square South.

Last season he brought silverware to York Road in the form of the County Cup.
