Time at Club:
Fleetwood Town sacked Uwe Rosler following a run of seven defeats in a row and have replaced him with John Sheridan who has been without a club since he left Oldham Athletic in September 2017, winning just 10 of his 33 games in charge.
The club have since announced that Joey Barton will become their new manager on June 2nd 2018.
The club appointed Rosler as their new manager in July 2016. The German, who had previously managed Leeds, Brentford and Wigan, signed a two-year deal to replace Stephen Pressley, and went on to enjoy an impressive debut season, leading his troops to a top-6 finish, but they lost out in the play-offs.
Fleetwood have been on an impressive journey since they re-formed in 1997. The club began life back in Division One of the North West Counties Football League, and as recent as 2005 they were in the ninth tier of English Football. However, after six promotions in 10 years they can now finally count themselves as a League One club.
A binary run of results has seen Fleetwood Town rack up 6 wins in the last 10 games, beating Walsall, Oxford United, Bristol Rovers, AFC Wimbledon, Northampton Town and Rochdale. Defeats to Peterborough United, Wigan Athletic, Blackpool and Rotherham United has seen them score 13 at an average of 1.3 goals per game while surrendering 11 (Avg: 1.1)
