John Sheridan trades Newport for former club Oldham

John SheridanJohn Sheridan has returned to Oldham Athletic for a second spell in charge after leaving his position at Newport County. The Latics have wasted little time in finding a replacement for the sacked David Dunn - who was sent packing on Tuesday - opting to lure former boss Sheridan back to Boundary Park.

  • Sheridan becomes Oldham's fifth manager in the last year.
  • Newport have appointed assistant manager Warren Feeney and first team coach Mike Flynn for the rest of the season.

Sheridan, 51, inherits a side struggling in the League One relegation zone, 22nd, five points adrift of safety. The Latics are in dire straits, having taken a measly two points from their last seven matches, while they were also booted out of the FA Cup by Sheffield United.

In his previous tenure at Boundary Park (2006-2009) Sheridan led his troops through to the play-offs in his first campaign at the helm; losing to eventual winners Blackpool in the semi-finals. The following season the club missed out on the top-6, finishing 8th, while he lost his job the next term in March 2009 after a 6-2 thrashing at MK Dons.

Sheridan has since managed Chesterfield and Plymouth, while the lure of returning to Oldham means his three-month stint at League Two's Newport has come to a sudden halt.

Sheridan's first match back in charge of the Latics is away to mid-table Bradford, 13th, with the hosts the odds-on favourites for the win, while Sheridan's troops can be backed at 4/1 to register a debut victory.
