Relief as County’s boss hits the bull
JOHN SHERIDAN seems to have turned things around at Newport County – and it’s all about making sure the focus is on the football pitch!
Just two defeats from his first 11 games in charge has seen the League Two team climb off the foot of the table.
And Sheridan, a former Ireland international, admits he had to call in the fun police to arrest Newport’s run of bad results.
He said: “When I came in, I was going to get rid of the table tennis table and I was going to get rid of the dartboard. Seriously, I was.
“It was a bit too jolly-jolly for me and for a team that was at the bottom of the league.
“Luckily, we got off to a decent start, but it was about making a few changes and putting your stamp on it.
“Any player that has played under me knows what I’m like, I’m very honest. If I have to tell you something, I’ll say it to your face, which I always wanted when I was a player.
“I respected managers who were like that. Some managers used to pick on me but at least they were telling me to my face.”
