Vital Rotherham's League Two Manager Poll

Vital Rotherham recently had a front page poll asking Who was the best League Two Manager of last season



There were six choices -

John Sheridan who got his Chesterfield side promoted in mid-April and consequently they were confirmed as champions on 7th May.

Before becoming the Spireites manager in 2009, John had managed Oldham Athletic and had played for Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Bolton Wanderers, Doncaster Rovers and Oldham.



Alan Knill who is well known to Millers fans, firstly as a player and then manager. Knilly was sacked by Rotherham after not winning for fourteen games and being bottom of League One at the beginning of March 2007 and, after working in the backroom at Saltergate, became Bury`s Manager the following February. In his first full season with the Shakers he just missed out on automatic promotion on goal difference and lost in the play-off semi-final to Shrewsbury. With just a few weeks to go until the end of the season, and Bury in the automatic promotion places, Knill left to join Scunthorpe. Former Miller Richie Barker took over at Bury and they went up in second place.



Gary Waddock who is the manager of Wycombe Wanderers, taking over in October 2009 and although unable to stop them from sliding down into League Two he`s made amends and took them back up this season in third place, one point behind Bury and six behind Chesterfield. Gary, who played most of his league games for QPR, Millwall, Bristol Rovers and Luton Town, also managed QPR and Aldershot Town.



Graham Turner who is in his second spell as manager of Shrewsbury Town. Having played over three hundred and fifty games for the Shrews, Graham was first appointed player/manager in 1978 and stayed with them until going to Aston Villa six years later. He also had spells managing Wolves and Hereford before returning to Shrewsbury in June 2010. The Shrews finished on seventy-nine points, one less than Wycombe and in fourth place losing out to Torquay in the play-off semis.



John Coleman the manager of Accrington Stanley who finished in fifth place and lost out to Stevenage in the play-off semis. John played a lot of non-league football and was one of the most prolific non-league goal scorers in history, scoring over five hundred goals. In 1997 he was appointed player/manager of non-league side Ashton United going as manager to Stanley two years later where he has seen his side win three promotions as champions before getting them into the Football League in 2006. John is the third longest serving manager in England behind Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.



Our last option was 'other`.



I think it was a bit obvious that John Sheridan was going to get the most votes with the voting ending like this -



John Sheridan 41%
Alan Knill 30%
John Coleman 17%
Other 4%
Gary Waddock 4%
Graham Turner 4%


If you were one of the ones who voted 'other` let us know who you would have liked to see on the poll and why - did anyone vote for Ronnie I wonder?


Personally, when we have this poll next season I am hoping to see A Scott at the top!
