2nd thread about my old Gaffa, Ryan Hindley [RH], covering his time in charge @HallamFC1860, @WorksopTownFC & @RMFC1919 after recently standing down from the last.

Following on from here :
(if you missed him kicking it, rather than shouting at it)

12 May 2013 :

HRH 'Massive' with @RoyalEarlFC, made King.
(appointed as Manager)

By Oct.2014 :

HFC were @NCEL-D1's foot.

No wins in the League.
Worst run of form since the disastrous 1932/33 Season.

Only two wins had been had at all, so far.
One in the Rules Derby in pre-season, against SFC.
t'other in @SHCFA Sheffield Challenge Cup.

1933 saw HFC Evicted from #Sandygate.

Relegation in @NCEL-D1 possibly meant no #Sandygate return to it.

This would have been due to the fact of @HallamCC's usage & the @FA Ground-Grading Regs of the time would've barred the now-3-sided #HomeOfFootball from re-entry to NLS.

On 24 September 2014, HFC announced the resignation of @DinningtonSteve and that the search to fill the rôle (indeed, to survive in the @NCEL) had begun.

Toyne was only Manager from the start of 2014/15, but his dismal reign will never be forgotten...

5 Oct. 2014 :

News broke, partly by way of an HFC Committee Member via @Twitter for the first time ever, as the club put out the word of a fresh appointment.

6 Oct. 2014 :
Official NCEFL Announcement.

RH was the new Manager at #Sandygate, the #HomeOfFootball, but in charge of a winless side that was already well adrift of the teams above it in the @NCEL standings.

Thankfully for The World's Oldest Members' Foot-Ball Club, there was immediate change in fortune.

HFC lead .v. @ShirebrookTwnFC, a 2-3 loss before the season's largest crowd at #Sandygate.

RH won his 2nd match in charge, away, against stronger opposition.
@Selby_FC 1-4 HFC.

RH with achieved his first milestone with HFC, the first real thrashing of @NCEL opposition since the near-forgotten victories over @DinnoTown & Brodsworth.

17 Jan. 2015 :
@LMoorlands 1-8 HFC

However, Massive's tenure wasn't without its bumps in the road.

When complete collapse in form occurred in mid-Mar.2015 (a shocking 7 consecutive defeats under RH) then a strong & clearly balanced, but deeply enquiring, thought had to've been given to RH's place in the rôle.

5 May 2015 :

3 wins & 2 draws @NCEL-D1 Fixtures closed out the season comfortably and RH's work in the rôle drew high praise from HFC'S then-Chairman, Chris Taylor.

#Sandygate, the #HomeOfFootball, was safe - at least for another year @NCEL-D1 level

HFC finished 14th, far more respectable than the dire straits in which the season began, under @DinningtonSteve.

The beginning of the 2014/15 Season remains amongst the least successful HFBC managerial spells in over 200 years of history at #Sandygate, the #HomeOfFootball.
