Holdsworth Back In Management

Ex-Mansfield manager David Holdsworth has been appointed manager of Blue Square Premier outfit Lincoln City. Holdsworth, out of work since his departure from Mansfield in November 2010, has a contract until the end of the season with City, currently in the bottom four of the table.

Holdsworth had also had a short spell in charge of Ilkeston Town before moving to Field Mill. He spent most of his playing career at Watford, making over three hundred appearances in ten years for the club in the eighties and nineties. He also enjoyed spells at Sheffield United, Birmingham City and Gretna before retiring from playing in 2005 after making more than five hundred appearances.

His appointment at Lincoln sees the club fill the vacancy left by Steve Tilson, who was dismissed on October 10th. Tilson had been in charge of The Imps for a year, but relegation from the Football League and a poor start to this season sealed his fate.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
