After plenty of speculation League Two side Notts County have finally announced that John Sheridan will be their new manager.
Sheridan is believed to have signed a three-year deal at Meadow Lane and will replace Mark Cooper who left the club at the start of the month.
The new County boss had only been with Oldham for five months after joining the Latics for a second spell in January but did well to steer the club clear of the League One drop zone.
Several Oldham fans have reacted with surprise at Sheridan’s decision to drop down a division to take charge of County.
Sheridan told the Notts County official club website, “I’m delighted to be joining Notts County and relishing the opportunity to get the club challenging for promotion to League One.
