Sinclair gets early exit at Hednesford
Hednesford Town have announced the departure of former Claret Frank Sinclair as manager less than three months after he took charge and left the club looking for a fourth manager this season.
After losing 3-0 at Stockport last night, a short statement from the club read: “Hednesford Town Football Club and Frank Sinclair have this evening parted company.”
He joined them as recently as December, replacing Bernard McNally who had also been sacked, but it hasn’t gone well and they’ve won only two of the thirteen league games played since he took charge, and both wins came against fellow National League North strugglers AFC Telford.
Sinclair had previously been working in the academy at Oldham after resigning as Colwyn Bay manager in early 2015 and then, for a short time, playing for Brackley Town.
It’s over nine years since Sinclair left Burnley for Huddersfield after two and a half years at Turf Moor. He was one of Steve Cotterill’s early signings and went on to play over 100 games for us, scoring once in a 2-1 win against Rotherham in February 2005.
He captained the side for a season and a half after the sale of Robbie Blake to Birmingham and on his departure, manager Steve Cotterill said: “He has been first class. We’d like to wish him all the best from everybody here.
“He’s been magnificent from the moment he walked through the door, from his first header against Everton in his first pre-season friendly, until the last game he played for us. We will miss him because he is a great character.”Follow UpTheClarets:
