Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Oldham Athletic legend John Sheridan looks set to become the new Chesterfield Manager following his departure from Carlisle United.
Chesterfield sacked boss Martin Allen after they dropped into the relegation zone, and John Sheridan looks set to become the next manager of Chesterfield.
Chesterfield simultaneously went on their longest ever winless run in the league (19 games) under Martin Allen and also went 12 games unbeaten in all competitions, the clubs’ longest sequence without defeat for more than a decade.
Chairman of Carlisle United Andrew Jenkins, said this about the departure of John Sheridan: “In his short time at United, John has made a positive difference to the club. He has improved the style of football and assembled a squad that is able to compete with the best teams in the League Two.”
“Working with the squad and management team, he has helped to establish a winning formula at the club that we will take forward and build on to ensure that John’s hard work is not lost.”
“The request to leave came from John. Over the last few days, the board and John had discussed football squad matters, and these were being resolved. I would like to thank him for his commitment, and we all wish him the best of luck for the future.”
John Sheridan’s best time in management was with Oldham Athletic. Sheridan first managed Latics from 2006-2009 and had a six-month spell in charge in 2016 before leaving to take over at Notts County. He returned at the beginning of 2017 following the sacking of Stephen Robinson.
