John Sheridan has become the new manager of Swindon Town after his short-term deal as boss of fellow Sky Bet League One side Wigan Athletic expired. Experienced head coach Sheridan only joined the Latics, who are currently facing a magnitude of financial problems, on a short-term deal in September but moves across the division to replace Richie Wellens at the County Ground until the end of the season.
John Sheridan has left Wigan to become first-team manager at fellow Sky Bet League One club Swindon. The 56-year-old moved to the DW Stadium in September on a short-term contract and took charge of 15 matches. Speaking on behalf of Wigan’s joint-administrators, Dean Watson said: “We would like to place on record our thanks to John for his efforts during the last two months and we wish him well in his future career.
