Paul Hendrie (born March 27, 1954) is a Scottish former professional footballer. He was born in Glasgow and is the father of Derby County F.C and England midfielder Lee Hendrie.[1]


Playing career

Hendrie joined Birmingham City in March 1972 from Scottish junior side Kirkintilloch Rob Roy. He failed to establish himself at St. Andrews and left in 1976 to join NASL side Portland Timbers.

He returned to the UK in September 1977, joining Bristol Rovers, but again struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular. In July 1979 he joined Halifax Town for a fee of £5,000. In January 1980, he famously scored the goal that put top flight team Manchester City out of the FA Cup in the third round. He made nearly 200 appearances before leaving for Stockport County in August 1984 for a fee of £1,500. He ended his league career with Stockport in the 1988-89 season, but subsequently played non-league football for Bath City, Nuneaton Borough and Burton Albion.

Managerial career

Hendrie joined Redditch United in November 1991, staying just over three years with limited success. In February 1995 he left to manager Tamworth and in his first season he guided the club from near relegation to within a point of promotion. However, the next season the Southern League Midland Division title, and with it promotion, was achieved after a 5-0 win at Stafford Rangers, with the overall margin of victory at the end of the season, a massive 26 points.

The next season in the Southern League Premier Division, 1997-1998, Tamworth finished 15th enough. The following season Tamworth finished mid-table after a 9th place finish, but also reached the first round of the FA Cup, losing 4-1 in a replay at Exeter City after a 2-2 draw at the Lamb.

The next season Tamworth finished 6th and yet again reach the first round of the FA Cup, before an extra time winner by Bury saw them triumph 2-1 after yet again another 2-2 draw at the Lamb.

In December 2001 Hendrie was sacked due to the club being stuck in the relegation zone,[2] and at the start of the new year Gary Mills was appointed manager.

His nephew John Hendrie was also a professional footballer.
