Since ending his highly successful playing career Frank Sinclair has endeavoured to explore management and coaching opportunities which have allowed him to build his skills while having a clear impact on team success and player development.


While playing at Colwyn Bay Frank was given the chance to manage the team while still playing on the pitch, a learning experience that improved his tactical awareness, in-game decision making and ability to engage with players who had previously seen him primarily as a teammate.

More recently Frank has worked with League One club Oldham Athletic managing at U12 and U16 level - inspiring an increased focus on youth development and effective academy structure- while also taking chrge of the Hednesford Town FC first team during season 2015-16.
