Carnage in League One as John Sheridan and Ady Pennock are sent packing

by Jack Kitson / 25 September 2017, 10:54

Ady Pennock and John Sheridan have become the latest casualties of the Sack Race after each manager was sent packing via the old “mutual consent” classic on Monday morning.

The duo became the second and third victims of the 2017/18 League One Sack Race, and sixth and seventh from the top-4 tiers this term.

Pennock the first to officially leave following a rotten run of one win in nine league games which left the Gills down in 22nd, while Sheridan swiftly followed with the same miserable record at rock-bottom Oldham.

In total Pennock, 46, lasted only 32 games spanning nine months in the Gillingham dugout, 15 of which he lost, while he only registered the six victories, meaning he leaves with just a 18.75% win rate. Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to fellow strugglers Rochdale proved to be his final game at the helm, with the club 22nd in the third-tier.

Pennock replaced Justin Edinburgh back in January and proceeded to steer the Gills to safety, only just mind, with the club finishing one point and one place above the dreaded drop zone. However, a rotten return of one win in nine games in the current campaign has seen both himself and coach Jamie Day leave the club.

Oldham have also endured a shocking start to the season, picking up just four points from their first nine games. Saturday’s 5-1 hammering at the hands of Rotherham proved to be the final straw as Sheridan leaves the club for the third time, having previously departed in 2009 and 2016.

Oldham, no strangers to sacking managers, are now searching for their sixth boss in the space of two years, with Sheridan (x2), Stephen Robinson, David Dunn, and Darren Kelly all leaving the club.
