Owls legend John 'Shezza' Sheridan has taken over as boss of League One side Oldham Athletic following the unexpected departure of Ronnie Moore.
Sheridan, who was remembered most for his stunning deciding goal in the Owls 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the Rumbalows Cup Final of 1991, has been in charge of Oldham's reserve side but will now replace Moore who left the club today.
Oldham Managing Director Simon Corney told the official Oldham website: 'Clearly, a lot of fans had not taken to him, and season ticket sales have been very slow. People seem to think we have vast sums of money, but unfortunately that is not the case. We have to work within certain constraints, and at the end of the day it was a financial decision. It wasn't a pleasant job telling Ronnie, and he was shocked. There is no doubt he had some unbelievable injury problems last season. Furthermore, we asked for stablility and he had succeeded on that issue.'
Sheridan had a previous 11-week spell in charge at Boundary Park as caretaker boss in 2004 after Iain Dowie left the club, and has been involved with the Latics in numerous positions.
Corney continued: 'But John Sheridan has always had a good rapport with the fans, and likes to play entertaining football. I hope our decision will go a long way to boosting season ticket sales, and help towards the revenue that will always be needed to continue to take our club forward.'
Shezza moved to Hillsborough from Nottingham Forest in November 1989 and made over 200 appearances for the Owls. He also notched up 25 league goals for the club, but his most memorable came in the 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Wembley which saw Wednesday lift the League Cup in 1991.
Vital Sheffield Wednesday wished Shezza all the best in his new position with the Latics!
