After enjoying a successful playing career as a midfielder, Sheridan went into management with Oldham and went close to promotion before he was sacked following an alleged fight between him and his players at a racetrack.
Sheridan then won the League Two title and the Football League Trophy in his next job with Chesterfield.
Sheridan moved south to join Plymouth but opted to leave due to 'family reasons' and he has since endured a short spell with Newport before returning to Oldham, then Notts County, then back to the Latics in January 2017.
