Chesterfield have confirmed the appointment of John Sheridan as their new first team manager.
He replaces Martin Allen who parted company with the National League club after a 4-0 defeat to Solihull Moors saw them drop into the relegation zone.
On the 4th January, Sheridan resigned as manager of League Two side Carlisle United with immediate effect.

Chesterfield owner Dave Allen said: “I think it’s more than a coup for the club. I’m absolutely delighted.”
John Sheridan said: “It’s a tough time and it’s about winning games as quickly as we can. I’m under no illusions.
“I’ve identified areas of the team we need to strengthen. Adding a couple of players will give us a bit of a lift.”
Sheridan, a former Spireites boss, has also managed Oldham (five times), Plymouth Argyle, Newport County, Notts County and Fleetwood Town.
His only two trophies he’s won as manager was with Chesterfield – the League Two title in 2010/11 and the Football League Trophy in 2011/12.
Football fans have given their reaction with Chesterfield supporters wishing him luck and Carlisle’s lot having one thing in mind about the appointment – take a look at what they had to say on the next page.
