His most recent spell in management came in 2016 when he was in charge of Eastleigh in the National League where he went unbeaten in his first 10 games in charge.

The experienced manager has applied for the Chesterfield job in the past but was unsuccessful.

Sheridan was sacked today with Chesterfield third bottom of the National League and five points from safety.

Former Spireites academy manager John Pemberton has returned to the club as caretaker manager for this Saturday’s match against Sutton United.
