Player career


1. SV Jena

Heinz Werner belonged to his hometown club 1. SV Jena from 1921 to 1945 and won the championship with the Blue-Yellows in the Gauliga Mitte in 1935, 1936, 1940 and 1941. As early as 1931 he was active for the first time for Central Germany in the competition of the Federal Cup. In the 3: 4 defeat in Berlin against the selection of Brandenburg he was called up as a center forward and scored a goal. He was supported by the two half-strikers Erwin Helmchen and Richard Hofmann . Due to his outstanding club performance, he made it to 21 appointments in the competition for the Reichsbund Cup from 1933 to 1942 in the district selection center . After successes over Southwest, Lower Saxony and in the semifinals in Hamburg against Nordmark - with Hans Rohde , Erwin Stührk , Otto Rohwedder , Herbert Panse , Rudolf Noack - the man from Jena also belonged to the final team on March 24, 1935, which won 2-0 goals of the Gau Mitte against the selection of Brandenburg - with Hans Appel , Emil Krause , Kurt Hallex - in Berlin. The defensive association of the Reichsbund Cup winner consisted of goalkeeper Ernst Tzschach , defenders Gerhard Riechert and Rudolf Müller and the runner row with Heinz Werner, Kurt Böttger and Kurt Tetzner . In the final round of the German championship in 1935, he completed all six group matches as a middle runner against VfB Stuttgart, SpVgg Fürth and 1. Hanauer FC 93. In terms of sport, the year was crowned for him by his appointment to the German national football team on August 25, 1935 in Erfurt for the international match against Romania. In the 4-2 victory he formed a row of “debutants” together with Fritz Deike and Albin Kitzinger . For the international match on October 20, 1935 in Leipzig against Bulgaria, he was again in the squad of the DFB-Elf of Reich coach Otto Nerz , but he was not used in the 4-2 success and he was no longer in his long-lasting playing career appointed the national team. From 1935 to 1941 he made 22 appearances for Jena in the finals for the German championship and scored one goal. He was an outstanding protagonist of Thuringian football.

Hamburger SV

After the upheavals of World War II , he moved from SG Ernst-Abbe Jena to Hamburg in 1946, and in the 1946/47 season he played 15 league games for Hamburger SV in the local league. With coach Hans Tauchert's runner-up team , he won the zone championship (North and West Germany) against Borussia Dortmund 1-0 on July 13, 1947 in Düsseldorf . The HSV defense was formed with Walter Warning in goal, Richard Dörfel and Herbert Holdt in defense and in the runner row with Heinz Werner, Erwin Reinhardt and Erwin Seeler . In the round of 1947/48, the championship in the soccer Oberliga Nord was held for the first time . Equally on points with 37: 7 points, the "Rothosen" ranked first with local rivals St. Pauli . The old international from Jena had scored three goals for HSV in 25 league games. In the immediate post-war era, the Elf vom Millerntor around the active players Hans Appel , Walter Dzur , Heinz Hempel , Karl Miller and Harald Stender were referred to as the “miracle team” and at that time they played on an equal footing with Hamburger SV. The HSV won the playoff for the northern championship with the right wing runner Heinz Werner on May 2, 1948 with 2-1 goals. After successes against Hamborn 07 (1-0) and in the semifinals over TSV Braunschweig (3-2), HSV and St. Pauli faced each other on June 13, 1948 in the Victoria Stadium Hoheluft in the final of the British Zone Championship. The almost 38-year-old Werner acted as usual on the right outside runner position and now the victory with 6-1 goals was clear. In the German soccer championship, which was held for the first time after the Second World War, Werner and his HSV teammates failed on July 18, 1948 after a surprising 1: 2 defeat against the Gauchel- Elf from TuS Neuendorf . On April 4, 1948, the senior had participated in a representative game of the regional associations West Germany against North Germany in Cologne for the NFV.

In his last season as an active player in the Oberliga Nord, 1948/49, the championship race with St. Pauli again ended with a tie: the two rivals finished the round with 32:12 points and therefore faced each other again on May 22, 1949 in a playoff for the North German championship opposite. Werner was active on half right in the 5: 3 success of HSV and had played again in 23 league games in the league season. The second appearance in the final round of the German championship also ended with a disappointment for Werner and his HSV colleagues. On June 12, 1949 in Frankfurt, VfR Mannheim prevailed in the preliminary round with an unexpectedly clear 5-0 win against HSV and celebrated winning the German championship in 1949 in the final against Borussia Dortmund. After 43 league appearances with three goals the finished almost 39-year-old Werner started his playing career in the top football league in the summer and took over as player-coach Bergedorf 85 in the Hamburg / Alster League for the 1949/50 round.

Coaching career

First of all, the length of his coaching activity with the "Elsters" stands out - from 1949 to 1967; only interrupted by the round 1955/56 at Eimsbütteler TV - out. In addition, winning the championship in 1958 in the Hamburg amateur league and after winning the promotion round, the promotion to the northern football league are particularly significant. Holding the class until the end of the Oberliga era 1962/63 and the four rounds of second division football from 1963/64 to 1966/67 in what was then the North Regional Football League also underline the quality of the coaching work of Heinz Werner. The runner-up in the amateur league in Hamburg in 1953 and 1954 with the promotion to the league, the first participation in 1952 in the games for the German amateur championship and the entry into the final in this competition in 1958 round off the work of the trainer Werner bei Bergedorf 85 from.
