Teddy Sheringham and Paul Tisdale linked with Swindon Townby Jack Kitson / 30 May 2017, 10:40Tweet
Swindon Town's fruitless search for a new manager had stalled somewhat, but not anymore after it suddenly burst into life as two gaffers have been hurled into the frame, in Teddy Sheringham and Paul Tisdale.
Sheringham appeared out of nowhere at 16/1 on Monday, but was then quickly slashed down to just 4/1 (Sky Bet), joining Mansfield manager Steve Evans and Partick Thistle's Alan Archibald in the top echelons of the market.
Meanwhile Tisdale, who is the longest-serving manager in the Football League, has been cut from 28/1 to 12/1 after Exeter City lost the League Two play-off final to Blackpool. His next steps are unknown at the moment, but there are whispers that the most stylish man in football could fancy a fresh change after 11 years with the Grecians.
It appears increasingly unlikely that Evans will make the move from Mansfield, especially given the amount of players he has brought into the Stags since the season came to a close.
Archibald has caught the eye following some superb work at SPL side Partick, while Gary Bowyer led Blackpool up to League One over the weekend so a sudden switch to Swindon is improbable.
Sheringham's one and only spell in the dugout was with Stevenage last season. The former England international, who remains the Premier League's oldest ever goalscorer, spent eight months in charge of the League Two but was sent packing after winning only seven of his 33 games at the helm, with the club down in 19th.
Sheringham is very much a rookie when it comes to management while his record is disappointing, but everyone deserves a second chance right...?
