Carl Fletcher has been named the new caretaker manager of Plymouth.

The midfielder, 31, will be assisted by long-serving goalkeeper Romain Larrieu at Home Park. The duo, who are both on the playing staff at the club, take over from Peter Reid - who was sacked by the Pilgrims' acting chairman Peter Ridsdale on Sunday.

Fletcher has pledged to put his all into his new role, as he takes on the task of hauling troubled Argyle away from danger and he said in a statement shortly after his appointment: "I can assure all of our supporters that I will give nothing short of 100% in attempting to turn round our fortunes on the field."

The Pilgrims are struggling on the pitch and fighting liquidation off it, and a run of just one draw and eight defeats from nine npower League Two outings.

He added: "I believe that, with the current squad and perhaps one or two additions, there is no reason why we cannot return to winning ways sooner rather than later.

"Our supporters have been magnificent during a turbulent period in our history and I am sure that, with their continued help, we can quickly put the past behind us and start to climb back up the Football League."
