Vanarama National League North strugglers Hednesford Town have parted company with manager Frank Sinclair for the second time inside six weeks.

Sinclair was initially appointed by the Keys Park club in December, as he replaced former manager Bernard McNally.

The former Chelsea defender left the Pitmen following a 3-0 defeat at Stockport County in early March, only to be reinstated into the role three days later.

Since then the club has won only one of their last eight games, that victory coming with the 2-1 home win over Tamworth last Saturday.

Tuesday night’s home reverse against Worcester City proved to be the final straw and Sinclair and the Pitmen have now parted company once again.

The club announced the news with a short statement on their official website.

It read “Hednesford Town Football Club and the Management Team of Frank Sinclair and Chris Millington have this evening parted company by mutual consent.

The Pitmen now look to concentrate on Saturday’s game against Solihull Moors in the National League North”

Hednesford have three games remaining this season

They face away games against League champions Solihull Moors and play-off chasing Nuneaton Town, as well as their final home game of the campaign against Bradford Park Avenue.

Tuesday’s defeat against Worcester City left the Pitmen on the brink of relegation to the Evo-Stik League.

They are eight points from safety, with nine points to play for but nineteenth placed Brackley Town have a far superior goal difference.
