Frank Sibley

The short-term Walsall boss passed away late last week.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsWe are deeply saddened to learn that former Walsall manager Frank Sibley has died at the age of 76.

Frank Phillip Sibley was born in Uxbridge on Thursday, 4th December 1947, a defender by trade he made his way through the ranks at Queens Park Rangers where he would make his debut on 3rd September 1963 at the age of 15 as the R's took on Aldershot Town.

A member of the side that won both the Third Division Championship and League Cup in 1966–67, Frank's playing career was sadly curtailed when he was just 23 after he suffered a serious knee injury.

Joining the QPR coaching staff, Sibley eventually left the Loftus Road side, becoming Walsall manager in 1979, and he would take charge of just 19 games, suffering some eleven defeats along the way.

After returning to a coaching role at QPR, including a spell as caretaker manager, he would later be named chief scout at Watford before leaving the beautiful game altogether.

We would like to send our deepest condolences to Frank's family and friends during this sad time.
