A legendary figure at Boundary Park due to his exploits as a player and manager, John Sheridan is currently in his fourth permanent stint in the Boundary Park hotseat.

Returning in January as Latics fought to preserve their EFL status, Sheridan’s quest to keep Oldham in League Two may have ultimately been unsuccessful but he earned many plaudits for giving the club a fighting chance.

Having agreed a new contract immediately after relegation, Sheridan’s hunger is as sharp as ever as he looks to lead an Oldham resurgence.

After a distinguished playing career at Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds and Doncaster, he joined Latics in 1998, spending six years pulling the strings in the centre of the midfield.

After two shifts in interim charge, he was first appointed as Latics manager on a permanent basis in June 2006, overseeing a notable FA Cup win at Everton, before returning in 2016 and 2017 to orchestrate memorable escape acts to ensure the club remained in League One.

He was unable to repeat the feat last season, but the former Notts County, Chesterfield and Plymouth boss is now tasked with returning leading the club into a new era following a change of ownership this summer.
