Adam Hinshelwood


Adam Hinshelwood is a football coach serving as the Manager of Worthing Football Club.

He has previously been associated with Hastings United, Aldershot Town and Burgess Hill Town during his career.


Adam Hinshelwood began his professional football career at Brighton & Hove Albion in August 2002 under his Uncle Martin. His journey took him to Aldershot Town in June 2009 and then to Wycombe Wanderers in January 2010, managed by Gary Waddock. However, a recurring knee injury limited his appearances at both clubs, leading to his retirement at the end of that season. Hinshelwood, who was called up twice for the England Under-21s in 2004, comes from a family deeply rooted in football, with his grandfather, father, brothers, and Uncle Martin all being former professional players.

Transitioning into a coaching career, Hinshelwood first managed his local club, Selsey, and served as assistant manager at Hastings United and Burgess Hill Town. He became the manager of Worthing on Christmas Day 2013, just before taking charge of his first game. In the 2014/15 season, he narrowly missed securing a spot in the Division One South Play-Offs with Worthing. Hinshelwood then moved back into full-time coaching as the manager of Brighton’s Under-18s.

Hinshelwood’s coaching career continued at Hastings United for the 2017/18 season, where he also oversaw the academy. He returned to Worthing in September 2017, responding to a call from Woodside Road. His leadership and managerial skills were recognized when he was awarded the Manager of the Season for guiding Worthing to the Isthmian League title in the 2021/22 season.
