Newport appoint manager as Sheridan’s number two

Warren Feeney has resigned as manager of Linfield and become assistant manager to John Sheridan at League Two side Newport County. The official Newport County website revealed the news, confirming he joins with immediate effect.

Sheridan was appointed to the top job at Rodney Parade last week following the departure of Terry Butcher after a disappointed start to the season. Feeney has been the number one at the Belfast club since April 2014, finishing as runners-up last season and currently sitting top of the NIFL Premiership. However Feeney has plenty of Football League experience from his playing days with the likes of Luton Town, Plymouth Argyle, Stockport County and AFC Bournemouth. The 34-year-old is delighted to be part of the new management team with the South Wales outfit,

“I have fond memories of playing in this part of the world, my family home is still in Langstone and I have undertaken my coaching qualifications through the FA of Wales. It is also a bonus to be reunited with John Sheridan.”

I saw this as the perfect club to return to the Football League and I look forward to be involved with the first-team on a day-to-day basis.

The season is still in the early stages and looking at the players the club have at their disposal I am confident that we can negotiate our way off the bottom of the table.”

The BBC revealed that Linfield have offered Feeney an improved deal last night in the hope of keeping him at Windsor Park. However he has taken the opportunity to make a return to the English game, the first time in a coaching capacity. He is said to be earning significantly more under his new contract. Mike Flynn and Byron Anthony will continue to assist Sheridan and Feeney in the build-up to Saturday’s away game to Mansfield Town in League Two.
