Hallam appoint New Manager
0Posted 05th October 2014 - Posted in Club News Hallam have been somewhat surprised by the volume of applications for the first team Managers post vacated by Steve Toyne especially given the Countrymen's current position at the foot of the NCEL Division One. The club wanted to keep the job within Sheffield and to appoint someone who could bring a new enthusiasm and spirit into Sandygate and breath new life into a season that so far has just not got off the ground. Having given due consideration to the candidates and having held informal talks with several applicants the club are pleased to formally unveil 32 year old Ryan Hindley as the new boss of the Countrymen. Ryan started his playing days at Sheffield Wednesday during which time he spent a period on loan at Hallam. He then moved on to play for the likes of Chesterfield, Stockport, Halifax, Belper and Matlock and has still been playing at Clipstone this season whilst managing Meadowhall Sunday Side the Royal Earl,a position he stood down from several weeks ago before the vacancy arose at Sandygate. Chairman Chris Taylor said "There is no doubting Ryan's drive and ambition or how serious he is about moving into management. Hallam have given him a rare opportunity which we are sure he will take with both hands. He will no doubt lead by example whether that is from the dug out or out on the pitch with his players." He went on to say ,"Ryan is putting the final touches to his Management team with ex-Norwich player Andy Brownrigg being the first to join his coaching staff. He hopes to confirm his assistant in next day or two and will join caretaker manager Kev Staniland and U19 coach Rob Ward in the dug out for Tuesday nights Senior cup tie with Wombwell." "The club would also like to put on record their thanks to Kev Staniland for stepping into the breach whist we sought out a new manager. Kev has an important role at Hallam not only working close with Ryan in bringing through our U-19 squad into the ranks of the first team but also helping to develop the crop of young promising players we have at Hallam Wisewood U18's." Ryan Hindley and his team will take full charge of first team matters for the home game with Shirebrook next Saturday.
