@itvcentral (2/2) Club say occurred during County's 2-0 home defeat to Wycombe in December, which lead to a five-game touchline ban.
Following this disclosure of the content of Sheridan's language, Chairman Alan Hardy said:
It was our decision to terminate the contract based on what I read in the referee's report regarding the incident. This is a family-friendly club which aims to be a pillar of the local community.
Comments of the type made by Mr Sheridan were utterly appalling and wholly unacceptable, completely undermining the community spirit and focus we are striving to develop here.
In light of the recent disclosure of the referee's report, I thought it appropriate to communicate the exact reasons behind the course of action we took.

Sam Allardyce says "entrapment has won" after he lost his job following a newspaper investigation.
The Football Association terminated his contract on Tuesday after revelations made in The Telegraph.
Speaking outside his home the day after he left the England manager's job, the former Bolton boss explained he was off on holiday to reflect on what had happened.
On reflection, it was a silly thing to do; I helped out someone I had known for 30 years and unfortunately it was an error in judgement on my behalf.
I've suffered the consequences. Entrapment has won on this occasion.
The agreement [to terminate his contract] with the FA was all done very amicably.
I have a confidential agreement so I can't say too much more.
I'm going to go away and reflect on it. I am off abroad to chill out and reflect on it.
Sam Allardyce admitted he was "foolish" and his behaviour did not "live up to the high standards expected of an England manager," The FA's chairman has said.
Speaking after the meeting between the former England manager and The Football Association, at which it was decided that Allardyce would leave "by mutual agreement", Greg Clarke said Allardyce's comments were "inconsistent with the position as the senior manager of England".
Mr Clarke added that the "tipping point" in the decision for Allardyce to leave came during the meeting, and that The FA was not "embarrassed" by what had happened, but "sad".
Mr Clarke continued that the recent events were "not the plan we had, but we've got to make the new plan work," confirming that Gareth Southgate will take charge of the team for the immediate future.
