John Sheridan, 48, took over as Plymouth Argyle manager in January 2013, after Carl Fletcher was sacked. At the time, he had agreed to stay for this season only but today it was confirmed that he had agreed to stay on 'in principle' for the 2013-14 season.

He first stint as manager was ultimately successful after he kept the club in League Two, despite it having been in the relegation zone when he joined.

After starting on 6 January, he got off to a good start five days later - leading his team to a home victory over Morecambe. He was named League Two Manager of the Month for March after a run of four wins and a draw in six matches, including a key victory in the Devon derby over Exeter.

He went on to lose four of their next six games. But two more home wins to Cheltenham and away at Sheridan's former club Chesterfield, meant that despite a final defeat to Rochdale the club avoided relegation by two places.
