Colin Hendry admits harassing former girlfriend
3 August 2015

An assault charge was dropped against the former footballer

Former Scotland and Blackburn Rovers captain Colin Hendry has pleaded guilty to harassing his ex-girlfriend.

Hendry, 49, admitted sending unwanted text messages and emails to beautician Sarah Kinder after she ended their relationship in March.

An allegation of common assault against Hendry was dropped after Ms Kinder retracted her statement.

Blackpool magistrates adjourned sentencing until 20 August for a Probation Service report.

The court heard Hendry, of Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, accepted he made unwanted visits to Ms Kinder's home in the town and twice threw stones at her bedroom window.

Ms Kinder retracted her allegation that the ex-footballer grabbed her arm several times as she tried to get in a taxi.

'No assault evidence'

She attended court but was not required to give evidence in a scheduled trial at Blackpool Magistrates' Court.

Hendry began seeing Ms Kinder following the death of his wife Denise, 42, in 2009 as a result of botched cosmetic surgery.

Ms Kinder broke off the relationship in late December 2014 but they were reunited on 21 February, the court heard.

Hendry was told sentencing options ranged from a custodial sentence to a community order.

Hendry received a 17-month ban from the road earlier this year after he admitted drink-driving in Lytham in the early hours of 21 February.

He was previously reported to have "bombarded" Ms Kinder with text messages following the first split and was given a harassment order.

Ms Kinder finally ended the relationship on 3 March and Hendry's catalogue of harassment followed from that date until 18 April, it was said.

The central defender captained his country in the 1998 World Cup and appeared for a series of clubs including Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool and Rangers.

He also managed Blackpool and Clyde.
