John Sheridan Resigns As Carlisle United Manager

John Sheridan has resigned as Carlisle United manager after only seven months at Brunton Park.

Sheridan has helped Carlisle record a sparkling run of form as the League Two club have won five games on the bounce, but in a shocking turn of events the 54-year-old has elected to leave the club.

Those five wins have launched Carlisle into the play-offs of the fourth tier, but it was announced on the club website on Friday afternoon than Sheridan had asked to leave the club after only joining in June.

The statement read:

"The request to leave came from John," Carlisle chairman Andrew Jenkins said in a statement on the club website."The board and John had discussed football squad matters, and these were being resolved."

Assistant manager Tommy Wright and first team coach Paul Murray will take charge of Saturday's league match against Mansfield Town.
