Plymouth Argyle have appointed former Republic of Ireland international John Sheridan as their new manager. The 46 year old replaces Carl Fletcher who was sacked after defeat at Bristol Rovers on New Year's Day. Sheridan has been out of management since losing his job as Chesterfield boss in August 2012.
Sheridan, who won 34 caps for the Republic of Ireland will be presented by club owner, James Brent, early this week.
Following the announcement Argyle owner James Brent said:
The length of Sheridan's contract is still to be confirmed but the former Oldham and Chesterfield boss will need to make an immediate impact if he is to save the club from relegation from the Football League.
