Sturrock leaves Plymouth

Published Add your comment

Paul Sturrock has confirmed he is leaving Plymouth to seek a return to football management.

The 53-year-old has been working at Home Park in a business-support role since relinquishing control of first-team affairs to Paul Mariner in December.

Sturrock, who has managed Argyle over two spells in the last decade, said: "While I enjoyed my new role and responsibilities, I am a football manager - that is what I do. Therefore, I have decided to seek a return to management."

Sturrock`s first stint between 2000-2004 saw the club promoted as champions through two leagues from the Third Division to the Championship.

He returned to Home Park, after subsequent promotion-winning stints at Sheffield Wednesday and Swindon, in October 2007 but could not repeat the magic of his initial spell.

Chairman Sir Roy Gardner said: "The board would like to thank Paul Sturrock for his valuable contribution to Plymouth Argyle Football Club over many years. We know he will always rightly be held in the highest regard by the Green Army for his achievements in effectively securing two promotions in three seasons."
