Sat, Sep 12 2020

Premier Division Waterford have confirmed the departure of first-team boss John Sheridan after their two-nil win over Bohemians at Dalymount Park.

Ali Coote and Tyreke Wilson netted two first-half goals for the Blues who gave Sheridan a win in his final league game in charge of Waterford.

The result sees Waterford move to within four points of the Gypsies and they remain level on points with Filippo Giovagnoli’s Dundalk.

Everybody at Waterford FC would like to thank John for his incredible influence, professionalism and attitude in such a short space of time,” a statement from Waterford read.

“We wish him all the best in his new role as manager with Wigan Athletic.”

Wigan begin their League One campaign tomorrow lunchtime when they visit Ipswich Town at Portman Road.
