Chesterfield’s squad will love their new assistant manager, according to John Sheridan.

Sheridan has brought Glynn Snodin to the club as his number two, citing the former Leeds United full-back’s pedigree as the main reason.

Snodin has coached in the Northern Ireland set-up and won promotion as Simon Grayson’s assistant at Leeds, Huddersfield and Preston North End.

He and Grayson worked together again at Sunderland, as seen in a recent Netflix series, and then once more at Bradford City for a short spell.

“He’s just a very, very good assistant manager,” said the new Town boss.

“He’s worked at high levels his whole career and done a really good job wherever he’s been.

“He’s worked a lot with Simon Grayson.

“I’m absolutely chuffed to bits he’s coming in.”

Sheridan says Snodin expects a lot from players, but also has a jovial manner that endears him to people.

“He’ll be a great addition, the players will love him.

“He gets on with people, always got a smile on his face but he’s very good at his job.

“He demands a lot, but also he can be your best friend.”

The new management team take charge for the first time this weekend, when Chesterfield host Bedford Town in the FA Trophy.
