“This club is a joke, what a laughing stock we are,” – A selection of Carlisle fans react to manager resignation

Carlisle United have been plunged into disarray after manager John Sheridan quit the club this afternoon.

Sheridan has only been in charge at Brunton Park for six months, but he’s handed in his resignation with rumours abound that he may be due to take over at ailing National League side Chesterfield.

Chairman Andrew Jenkins confirmed the news in a club statement, saying: “The request to leave came from John. Over the last few days, the board and John had discussed football squad matters, and these were being resolved. I would like to thank him for his commitment, and we all wish him the best of luck for the future.”

The Cumbrians are enjoying a decent season in League Two, they’re occupying the final play-off place at the moment and are well positioned to mount a serious assault on the top seven through the second part of the season.

Sheridan, who was on his ninth managerial position, is a former Chesterfield boss, taking charge of the Spireites from 2009 until 2012. Last season he saved Fleetwood Town from relegation during a six-month stay and he’d seemingly done a good job of keeping Carlisle on the right track following Keith Curle’s departure.

the news has not been well received by the Brunton Park faithful, who are blaming the board for the loss of a manager that showed lots of promise.

Here’s a selection of their responses from Twitter.
