Pemberton Odds On For Sheffield United Job Following Adams Sacking

Steve Claridge by Steve Claridge / 11 May 2011, 09:43

Sheffield United's academy manager, John Pemberton, has been installed as the bookies favourite to become the next Blades boss following the sacking of Micky Adams. The Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade, Aidy Boothroyd and John Hughes are also in the running for the vacant position.

Adams was axed on Tuesday after failing to save the club from relegation to League One. Kevin McCabe, the Sheffield United Chairman, is now looking for his fourth manager in just 10 months. Adams, a former Brighton, Port Vale and Leicester manager, was widely expected to be given a full season in charge of the Blades after inheriting a side who were already struggling. However, since joining in December his record doesn't make for good reading - in 24 games in charge he won only four times, resulting in a return to the third tier for the first time since 1988-89 - which evidently wasn't good enough in the eyes of McCabe.

Victor Chandler have placed the Sheffield United academy boss John Pemberton as the odds on favourite at 1/3 to replace Adams as manager. The 46-year-old spent three years at Bramall Lane during his playing days, making 68 appearances for the club. Pemberton had a small taste of life as a manager in 2008 when he had a brief stint as caretaker boss of Nottingham Forest following the sacking of Colin Calderwood. He took charge of United's academy side a year ago and managed to take the team to the FA Youth Cup final for the first time in the club's history earlier this month. The former Colchester United and Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd and the Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade are both at 10/1 to take the job.
