Pilgrims Boss Resigns
Shock news for Plymouth Argyle fans as today as John Shreidan-manager for just 1 season has resigned. The 49 year old who picked up 34 caps for Ireland has decided to terminate his contract to recent poor health. Since becoming manager in 2013 John lifted Plymouth to 10th in the League 2 table, something he did with the help of chairman James Brent and assistant Thomas Pascoe.
Following the news Plymouth Argyle released this statement on the club's official website: "It's with extreme sadness that today John Sheridan parted company with Plymouth Argyle. Over his 1 year at the club he revived the club and helped us climb back up the footballing table. He (Sheridan) was an enthusiastic character at the club, much loved by players, staff and fans alike. We wish you well with your future and health John". Since the announcement of this statement there has been news of activity at Home Park with reported sightings of former Argyle Goalkeeper and current assistant manager Thomas Pascoe being spotted.
Plymouth Argyle have had a tough couple of years in the Football leagues being relegated from the Championship to League 2. Fans recently said they believed that Sheridan was the man to take Argyle back to the second tiers however confidence is probably low since the news was released earlier.
