Former Chelsea star Sinclair named as new Pitmen boss

Hednesford Town have moved to appoint former Chelsea and Leicester City defender Frank Sinclair as their new manager.

Following the departure of Bernard McNally earlier this week, Sinclair undertook an interview at Keys Park on Tuesday afternoon before being handed the role.

Sinclair has experience at this level having guided Colwyn Bay to safety in the 2012/13 season, despite being nine points from safety at one point.

In the following season the 44-year-old led Bay to a twelfth place finish while he also took temporary charge of Brackley Town earlier this season.

Speaking on his appointment, Sinclair said: “I’m pleased that it has come around now and I think I’m ready for the job, I have been helped along very much by the chairman and we have left no stone unturned regarding the squad, the football club and the supporters and what is expected here.

“We have got a lot of hard work to do and it is something that I am really excited about and I think it is a great platform for myself to go again and to try and improve on field results for Hednesford.”

Sinclair will take over as manager with immediate effect and will be assisted by Chris Millington with the duo having worked together at Oldham Athletic.

He added: “Chris Millington is someone I have worked with for the last year at Oldham Athletic. He is a very experienced coach and I am hoping that he will help me improve the players, organise the team and make us hard to beat.”

The manager will have two full training sessions with the team ahead of Saturday’s trip to Stalybridge Celtic.

The club would like to go on record to thank Chris Brindley, who has also departed Keys Park.

From the day that he came back to Hednesford as Rob Smith’s assistant in the summer of 2012, when Larry Chambers took a year off, the way that he has helped progress the club forward should be commended.

Upon Chambers’ return Brindley played an important part in keeping the team together both on and off the field, helping in the process of searching for a new managerial team and also filled in as caretaker manager while the club searched for a successor for Smith and Chambers in the summer.

Brindley will forever be a fans` favourite at Keys Park for his time as both a player and on the managerial front and we wish him well for the future.
