Shocker - Manager quits as better offer appears.

His tenure at Reds makes Sheridan looks like Mr Committed.

Just read somewhere that Workington paid £3k compensation for him as well. I bet theyre happy about that tonight.

Ive no idea but given hes resigned then maybe not. I take it we arent getting anything off Chesterfield for Sheridan which is similar. In fact id have thought if they want to give him the Carlisle job he wouldnt have had to resign and theyd have managed to sort it out between the two clubs. Who knows maybe the two arent even connected at this point.

I was not into a Scottish manager with DH but now that TW has a 100% win record and as knows the players then I would give the current crew till the end of the season as we are safe and lets see what we can do.

He put a team out that beat a better side than us.

It wont happen though I imagine as he said on the radio that he will see what the board offer him (if at all) but the chances are that a three and a half year contract possibility offers greater security than what we could offer anyone.

He'd joined Reds tho before Sheridan walked.

Yeah i know. I mean Sheridan resigned so we didnt get any compen so maybe Skelton resigning would mean Workington wouldnt get any. Just summising though as ive no idea whatll happen.

He’s obviously coming here, in what positions the question.

Cheap option, bit of a gamble, but can work with holdsworth. Could free up the budget to give Rotherham what they want for Yates and bring someone else in.

Promotion: not a chance but may be needed to avoid a drop to the conference next season.

At least we’re not Stockport

Was always a funny one to me

Left a secure full-time well-paid job [ i understand the salaries in accadamies are all but fixed centrally ] to become manager of Wukkie which surely isn't even full time and which i.d say will pay no more than 20k max [ remember the manager at Kendal just one league down doesn't even get paid ] Possible that a sponsor or somebody had agreed to give him an easy part-time job to make up his money of course but if that was the case youd of thought said company would be looking for some publicity for their gesture.

Workington had manufactured a full time job for Skelton. When not doing his managerial duties he’d be doing work in the community etc apparently.

Well that would explain things

Maybe when he found out the extra duties involved cleaning the bogs he started to have second thoughts.

Not quite the case The Wukkie players have to take their share of the responsibility for what's gone on over the last week or so.

And their board for refusing all requests GS was asking for.

They wouldn't give him any funds to get players in or help towards additional training sessions.

Overall a total mess there, far worse than ours believe it or not.

Little wonder he wanted to get out ASAP!

You’d have thought he’d have found out what the situation was before he went though. Fairly clear to anyone that gates of 3-400 aren’t gonna produce a lot of cash to spend or they’d have already given it to Hewson.

I think maybe he changed his mind when Shez left. And the travelling might have been a factor.
