Sheridan returned as Spireites manager in January 2019 and saved the club from relegation last season but was sacked on January 2 this year after a 3-0 defeat to Solihull Moors left Town five points from safety in the National League.

After the loss to Solihull Sheridan said he would not walk away from the job but he was sacked less than 24 hours later.

His assistants Glynn Snodin and Mark Crossley were also sacked.
