Waterford FC is today delighted to announce the appointment of John Sheridan as First Team Manager.
The 55-year-old former Leeds star will take charge of the Blues ahead of the 31st of July league restart, and will be assisted by first-team coach Francis Rocket.
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie, Sheridan said he was looking forward to the challenge that lay ahead of him in the RSC and was ready to get stuck in.
“I’m delighted to have gotten everything sorted with Lee and the club, and I can’t wait to get down to the training pitches and get stuck in.
“I am under no illusions of the task in hand. Speaking to Lee and others around the club, I am more than aware of what the club means to fans, and those involved. We’ll be looking to hit the ground running as soon as possible and getting sharp again ahead of the resumption of the league.
“I have spoken with the chairman a couple of times in the last little while, and we both are on the same page. We have set out some goals, and I will be pushing the players to make sure we achieve what we have set ourselves.”
As a player, Sheridan played 230 games for Leeds United, netting 47 times, as well as spending time with Sheffield Wednesday and Bolton Wanderers. In recent times, the Stretford born man, managed at Carlisle United and Chesterfield.

“I’ve known John for over 20 years and am delighted that he has agreed to help me and the club out. To have someone with John’s calibre managing the club is fantastic for the supporters and the city and will also put to bed a number of silly rumours that have surrounded my families commitments and ownership of the club.”
