Ex-Owl Wins Award

Ex-Owl Wins Award

Former Wednesday legend John Sheridan has been rewarded for guiding his Oldham Athletic side to fourth in League One by winning the divisional Manager of the Month award this week.

The Latics won all three of their league matches during November as they swept aside Cheltenham, Bradford and Huddersfield as well as progressing in the FA Cup with victories over Kettering and King's Lynn to set up an away tie at Wolves in the third round.

Shezza, who will always be remembered for netting the superb winner in the Owls League Cup victory over Manchester United at Wembley in 1991, beat off competition from Tranmere's Ronnie Moore, Crewe's Dario Gradi and Nottingham Forest's Colin Calderwood.

Shezza told the official OAFC site: 'This is good because it obviously means we're doing well, and that's the main thing', he revealed. 'However, credit to the players and staff, they're all working hard and I feel we're going the right way.

'We can do all the coaching and talking we want, but it's the lads who actually go out onto the pitch. All the players helped me win this, not just the starting eleven - it's a squad award as many players have come in and done a job when required.

'This award belongs to a lot of people who've helped me out along the way.'

Sheridan has enjoyed a number of caretaker boss spells at Boundary Park but took the reigns of a permanent basis in June this year - taking the Latics to 12 victories, five draws and seven defeats in his 24 games in charge.

The Irish midfielder is a cult hero at Hillsborough after making over 200 appearances in the famous blue and white shirts - netting more than 30 goals for the club.
