John Sheridan vows to lead Notts County "back where they belong"

Joe Jones

John Sheridan has promised to get Notts County "back where they belong" after his “instincts” told him not to turn the job down.

The former Sheffield Wednesday and Republic of Ireland midfielder, who has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at Meadow Lane, has set his sights on immediate promotion out of League Two and into League One.

At his first press conference at the helm of Notts, Sheridan told reporters: "I've played here and managed here. They've been in the top leagues.

"It's just the size of the club really. I don't know if I'm getting a reputation of coming in and getting clubs out of the dire situation they're in.

"I think it's a really attractive proposition for me to come and try to do what I've done of late, to try and get the club back to where they belong.

"First of all get them out the second division (League Two) and get them into the first. It's my instincts that feel I can come in and do well for them. It's a really big club to get going again.

"It was very hard to leave Oldham. Everyone knows my affection for them. I was there as a player and a manager… I'm just going with my instincts. They're telling me to come here.

"I went to Oldham in difficult circumstances. I feel as though I've done a really good job to keep them in the league.

"That was my main objective. I had a contract there and was looking forward to next season.

"This offer came along and it was one I felt I couldn't turn down."

Never any guarantees in football , but my money would be on JS to succeed where recent other managers have failed purely on his track record, its good enough to be more confident in him .

I think his mission should personally be to bring stability and remain at the helm of manager for his whole contract duration (but that sounds less exciting and probably wouldn't motivate as many fans) but as an whole, he's staying the right things and ticking the right boxes.

The more I speak to people, the more I feel he can be the person to deliver the stability we require.

Would love to see Notts storm the league but I will take things if and when they come. COYP!
