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.
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.
