Evo-Stik League Premier leaders Altrincham have cancelled the contract of midfielder Sam Sheridan preparatory to his expected signing for another club.
Sheridan either started or was a used sub in all but one of the first fourteen league games of this season, but his appearance in the second half of Tuesday’s game against Ashton United was his first since then as injury limited his appearances.
Just before Christmas 2017 he went on a one-month loan to league rivals Stalybridge Celtic to regain match fitness.
Sheridan had previously had a loan at Altrincham from Bolton Wanderers in 2009/10 but it was not until May 2017 that he actually signed for the club from FC United of Manchester, who he had joined in October 2015.
Prior to that, he had had brief spells at Chorley and Southport whilst on loan from Stockport County, where he was on the books from 2011 to 2015.
