Former Chelsea, Leicester player leaves non-league club after 77 days

Frank Sinclair leaves his position as manager of Hednesford Town after just 77 days in charge of the National League club.


Former Chelsea and Leicester City defender Frank Sinclair has left his position as manager of National League North side Hednesford Town after just 77 days.


Sinclair was appointed as the new boss of the Pitmen on December 15, and after picking up four points from two fixtures against AFC Telford United and FC United of Manchester, it appeared that he would become a hit with supporters at Keys Park.


However, since the turn of the year, he guided the team to just five points from a possible 27 and the club now sit at the bottom of the standings.


Last week, Sinclair had announced on Twitter that he was taking a break from the social media website in order to focus his attention on a crucial period for Hednesford as they faced teams around them in the standings.


On the same day, Hednesford secured a 0-0 draw away at Lowestoft Town but defeats to both Brackley Town and Stockport County resulted in Sinclair parting ways with the club late on Tuesday evening.


The former Jamaican international has also managed Colwyn Bay and was placed in caretaker charge of Brackley earlier this season.
