John Sheridan

Where is John Sheridan now?

An elegant midfielder with a fantastic range of passing and trickery, John Sheridan hung up his boots in 2004 whilst playing for Oldham Athletic a couple of months short of his 40th birthday.



Having already stepped in as caretaker manager on two occasions during his playing days at Oldham, Sheridan was appointed manager on a full time basis in 2006.

Sheridan had reasonable success at the club taking the club to top eight finishes in League One during his time there. Unfortunately after a run of bad results he left the club by mutual consent in March 2009.

John Sheridan was back in football management in June 2009 when he was appointed as the new manager of League Two side Chesterfield.

A successful couple of seasons ensued where Sheridan’s Chesterfield side won promotion to League One and then won the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy the following year.

However, Chesterfield’s cup winning year was soured when they were relegated back to League Two and Sheridan was sacked at the start of the 2012-13 season after a run of poor results.

In January 2013 John Sheridan was appointed as manager of Plymouth Argyle and kept them from relegation in his first few months.

Two successful seasons followed with the club achieving a 10th place finish followed by a 7th place finish which resulted in a play off semi-final aggregate loss in 2014/15.

After this loss, in May 2015, John Sheridan left Plymouth Argyle by mutual consent after expressing a desire to return to the north of England for family reasons.

In October 2015, John Sheridan was back in football as the new manager of League Two side Newport County.

He replaced Terry Butcher who was sacked after his team recorded only five points in their first 10 games leaving them rooted to the bottom of the table.

Sheridan immediately turned round the fortunes of the team and lifted the side to 20th in the league with 5 wins and 7 draws in 17 games.

In January 2016 John Sheridan left Newport County to take over the vacant manager’s position at his former club Oldham Athletic.

After steering the side from 22nd when he joined to 17th position at the end of the season, Sheridan left Oldham to join Notts County who he said were a much bigger club.

Unfortunately Sheridan’s time at Notts County was not a success and he was sacked in January 2017 after a club record run of nine successive defeats left them just one point above the relegation zone.

In a move that surprised many, Sheridan made a swift return to former club Oldham Athletic in January 2017 as their new manager.
