Notts County have just announced that John Sheridan has been appointed as the club’s new First Team Manager.

Sheridan, a former Republic of Ireland international, joins the Magpies from Oldham Athletic where he steered the club to 17th place in League One having taken over in January with the team in 22nd position and five points from safety.

The 51-year-old, who has signed a three-year contract, has a proven track record in the Football League, winning the League Two title and Football League Trophy with Chesterfield, whilst guiding both Oldham and Plymouth Argyle to the play offs.

On joining the club Sheridan said:

I’m delighted to be joining Notts County and relishing the opportunity to get the club challenging for promotion to League One.

The decision to leave Oldham was not an easy one and I will always retain my affection for the club and its fans.

Notts County is a big club - far bigger than its current league position suggests and having taken Chesterfield to the League Two title, I know what is required to succeed and get the club back to a higher level.

– John Sheridan
