About this deal

New appointed caretaker manager Andy Thorne put McIndoe straight back into the squad for the majority of the remaining matches in the 2010–11 season, [55] where he played a part in helping Coventry City retain their Championship status. On a 22 April 2007 Wolves played Birmingham City in the West Midlands derby, McIndoe scored two headers but then missed a penalty in the last minute for a hat-trick, losing 3–2. They went on to have a successful campaign, winning the FA Trophy at Villa Park against Stevenage [14] and finishing third in the Conference.

before McIndoe was declared bankrupt in 2015 and the Metropolitan Police launched a fraud investigation through the specialist Falcon Unit at New Scotland Yard. I’d lost my job, my girlfriend, my driving licence and had huge gambling debts,” McIndoe said in an interview with The Times in 2005. The following year he was given the PFA Division Three Player of the Year again, this time playing for Division Three champions, Doncaster Rovers. In the play-off semi-final against Crystal Palace, he scored a 30-yard free kick in extra-time taking Bristol City to their first Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium [48] against Hull City in front of almost 90,000. This was despite a lavish lifestyle with multiple properties, expensive cars and a nightclub in London’s West End.He played professional football for fifteen years at ten English football clubs, including Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bristol City and Barnsley. McIndoe, whose playing career also included spells at Hereford United, Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers, Barnsley and Milton Keynes Dons, has changed appearance. In the 2013–14 season McIndoe along with old Luton Town and MK Dons teammate Jude Stirling helped to coach young players at London Elite while playing alongside them. McIndoe opened the scoring in the fourth minute, beating goalkeeper Manuel Almunia from a tight angle.

There is only one working turnstile among the whitewashed walls of Raydale Park, home of Gretna 2008 FC, and it is manned by the club’s chairman. These were all above board, he insists, as they were all personal loans and 80 per cent were done through lawyers. Michael McIndoe (born 2 December 1979) is a Scottish football coach and former player, who is currently the manager of Edinburgh City. While playing for Doncaster Rovers he set a record scoring ten penalties which was more than any player in the English Football League in the 2005/06 season. Alongside the date of the transfer, the clubs involved and the transfer fee, it also displays the market value of the player at the time of the transfer.

In the opinion of its directors NIFA is neither a network nor a network firm within the meaning of the Code of Ethics of the International Federation of Accountants applying to assurance assignments. The Scottish winger was voted in the top five footballers of the year in The Times Football Yearbook 2004/05 [1] alongside Thierry Henry, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard. He played his last game for Stirling Albion against Annan Athletic in a 2–2 draw on 17 November 2018. He was voted in the top five footballers of the year in The Times Football Yearbook 2004/05, [1] alongside Thierry Henry, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard.

Now 42, McIndoe still has a bald patch on the back of his head from being hit with a crowbar during a gang fight involving knives, bats and golf clubs. Former teammate Matthew Upson [6] also played a huge part in advising McIndoe who would now focus on being the best athlete he could be and has been teetotal ever since. Bristol City [ edit ] Michael McIndoe scores from a free-kick during 2nd leg of the play-off semi-final against Crystal Palace. Where do we start with the newly appointed manager who is standing in front of his dugout with a story that is so complex and, at times, controversial that his club decided on the eve of his last match to bar The Athletic from entering the stadium?At the end of the 2000–01 season, the team just missed out on automatic promotion as they finished second. His case was always that they were personal loans and, because of the debts he accrued through gambling and failed business ventures, he was unable to pay them all back. McIndoe was named in the Nationwide Conference Team of the Year [18] and won the club's "Internet Player of the Season". Football gave McIndoe the opportunity to get out, even if his drinking and behaviour was so out of control at Luton Town, his first club, that he spent Millennium eve in the Priory hospital. On Saturday, they reverted to type by crashing out of the Scottish Cup with a 4-1 home defeat to Drumchapel United but it has still been an encouraging start for Gretna with a new manager who is described by one former team-mate as “one of the most hated men in football”.

In 2003 Michael won Conference Player of the Year, in a unanimous vote after being promoted into the Football League with Yeovil Town. At the same time, it is difficult to think Gretna could appoint somebody with McIndoe’s background and not understand that there will be media outlets who want to cover the story. Shortly afterwards, a follow-up message made it absolutely clear we would be denied entry at the turnstiles.We use your sign-up to provide content in ways you’ve consented to and improve our understanding of you. Derby County manager Terry Westley brought McIndoe in on loan in March 2006, as he tried to try to help keep the club in the Championship. The estate has one of the higher crime rates in Edinburgh and, to put it into context, McIndoe tells one story about the time the first Asian family moved into the neighbourhood.
