Dexter retired from Management at the end of the 1970 season when he handed over team control to his Assistant Tommy Coleman. The pressures of Southern League football becoming more and more a full time demand coupled with the loss of home life and job commitments were cited as reasons for his decision. However overtures were made towards him from Football League clubs for a full-time position and certainly Arsenal Manager Bertie Mee sought and utilised the benefit of Dexter's knowledge and guise at that point in his life. One must also remember that The Gunners pulled off the “Double” the following season of FA Cup and Football League. Co-incidence?
Above all he was a passionate student of the game. A sounding board for Sir Alf Ramsey, for Bertie Mee and Bill Nicholson, all of whom sought his opinion regularly. As a coach he looked for players with the ability to interpret his desired style of play - hence the signings he made. For me, as a proud member of one of Dexter's greatest teams, a "well done" from the great man was all I ever needed”.
