New Carlisle United boss John Sheridan targets promotion to League One

John Sheridan has set his sights on promotion to League One after he was named as Keith Curle's successor at Carlisle United.

Carlisle ended their lengthy six-week search for a new boss on Tuesday, with the incoming Sheridan, previously of Fleetwood and Oldham, telling the club's website:

"I have no hesitation saying that my hopes are to get Carlisle promoted. I have ambition, vision and want to establish a strong DNA within the football club."

The League Two club have been rooted in the fourth-tier for four straight seasons, finishing in 20th, 10th, 6th and then 10th again under Curle, who parted ways with the Cumbrians at the end of the season after nearly four years at the helm.

Carlisle's manager search had seen the club linked with the likes of Russell Slade, Matt Jansen, Neil Redfearn and David Hopkin, but in the end the Blues settled on Sheridan who had been out-of-work since leaving Fleetwood at the end of the season.

The 53-year-old, who has previously had five spells at Oldham (permanent and caretaker), led Chesterfield up to League One in 2011, and then won the Football League Trophy the following campaign.

After overseeing the appointment, Carlisle's Chairman Andrew Jenkins said:

"John knows League One and League Two football better than perhaps any other manager, and his reputation is formidable.

"He also has a clear passion for building the youth team, and making sure we're developing the new generation of talent we need going forwards.

"During the interview process, his understanding of our club and our players stood out and his football knowledge was unrivalled. He has a passion for this club and I could see the determination in his eyes.

"He shares our ambition and vision for the club, and will build on the excellent work of Keith Curle."
