We are delighted to announce that, following a meeting with Plymouth Argyle owner James Brent, John Sheridan has agreed, in principle, to continue as Argyle manager. The fine details of the appointment are to be ironed out, and both parties are confident that a deal will be finalised within the next few days. Accordingly, John will begin preparations for the 2013-2014 season immediately. Top of his priorities is to assess and make decisions regarding the playing squad for the new campaign, which John will be addressing this week.
Plymouth Argyle have confirmed John Sheridan as their new manager. The 46 year old has less than half the season to save the club from relegation. The Pilgrims lie second bottom in League Two and were beaten 4-0 by Port Vale over the weekend.
Following his appointment John said:
I am very privileged to get this opportunity to manage the club. I am very confident I can get us out of the position we are in if everyone - the players and fans - work together.
– John Sheridan, Plymouth Argyle Manager
The length of Sheridan's contract is still to be confirmed but the former Oldham and Chesterfield boss will be presented by club owner, James Brent, early this week.
