Kenny Hibbitt is extremely experienced within the game and entered management after a successful playing career.

His playing days will mainly be rembered for his time at Wolverhamption Wanderers where he made over 500 appearances.

During his time at Molineux, Hibbitt won two League Cups in 1974 and 1980. He scored  in the 1974 final and also played in the 1972 UEFA Cup Final. He also was part of two promotions that took the club back to the top flight.

He began his coaching career at Bristol Rovers - the club in which he ended his playing days - assisting manager Gerry Francis and helped guide the club to the Division 3 title in 1990.

After this success, he was appointed manager of Walsall, where he spent over four years with the Saddlers. During his time in charge, he took the club to the Division 3 play-offs in 1993/94.

He then left the Bescott to manage Cardiff City from Eddie May in the summer of 1995. The following year, Hibbitt became the director of football role with the arrival of Phil Neal.

Hibbitt again took charge once again after the departure of Neal before handing the reins over to Russell Osman.

In February 1998, after Osman left the club, Hibbitt took over team affairs for the third time, before being replaced by Frank Burrows.

He later returned to management with non-league Hednesford Town in September 2001.

Kenny is currently a Match Delegate at the Barclays Premier League.
