Leicester & Chelsea Legend breeding Internationals At Colwyn Bay!
A legend at Leicester City, Chelsea, Burnley, Huddersfield, Wrexham and Lincoln, fans will always have a soft spot for Frank Sinclair – own goals and all. But having played at the highest level for the red, the blues and all, he is currently cutting his teeth as manager of Colwyn Bay and doing well if your ask the opinion of his chairman and left back Louis Moss
Thanks for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs
During his Leicester City and Chelsea days Frank played for Jamaica before making 92 league appearances for Burnley and then 42 for Huddersfield as a loan turned into a permanent deal. He was a suave defender although his own goals meant he got more in the wrong end than the seven he got throughout his glittering career. But his dedication and, sense of humour got the lad a long way from those harsh Lambeth roots (See full biopic at the bottom).
Frank was a dark horse for the Wrexham job last season having turned the tiny club from also-rans to a team just 3 points from the play-offs again this season, with a game in hand. Sinclair, the 42-year-old player gaffer, is building a useful young squad with a terrific shut-out to earn a point against the Division’s money club North Ferriby last Saturday. This followed hot on the heels of a 4-1 win against Gainsborough and a 3-0 away at Leamington. Case in point young Moss who is as good with the assists as he is getting back to help and a chip off the old block so to speak. The full-back is simply chuffed to have received an international call up for Barbados against Haiti in the Concacaf Gold Cup in October.
Despite the lad missing two games during his international jaunt Frank, a gentleman of the game, is chuffed
“He will be a big miss for us, but I am happy his early season form has been recognised and he has an opportunity maybe to play in the prestigious Gold Cup against the likes of Brazil and Mexico.
“I played in that for Jamaica so I know the standard of the tournament.”
