THE GAFFER - JOHN SHERIDAN


Signing a three year contract in May 2013 with Argyle, John Sheridan is building solid foundations at the club.

Having played for the likes of Leeds United and winning the League Cup at Sheffield Wednesday. Sheridan was an experienced midfielder, one of his highlights featuring for the Republic of Ireland at the 1994 World Cup.


Making 621 appearances over all, Sheridan ended his playing career at Oldham, the club at which he would start his managerial career.


With the club from 2006-2009 in his first season Sheridan took the Latics to the play-offs only to be knocked out in the semi-final by Blackpool.


He then made the move to Chesterfield in June 2009 on a three year deal and in 2011 the club were crowned champions of league two, only for the next season to be relegated being relieved of his duties in August 2012.


It would not be long though for Sheridan to be out of a job as he took over in Argyle in January 2013 with the club in relegation trouble. Keeping the club in the Football League, the Irishman signed a three year contract last summer.

ONE TO WATCH- REUBEN REID



Having made his debut for Plymouth at just 18, eight years on and Reuben Reid again is making a name for himself at the club having already scored 20 goals this season for the Pilgrims.

After impressing so much at the club as a youngster, Reid signed for Rotherham in 2008 where he continued that form scoring 19 goals earning him a big money move to West Brom. The 25 year old though struggled for first team action and made moves to Oldham and Yeovil where injuries occurred.

However this season he is showing the goal scoring form he’s known for as the third top scorer in League two with 16 goals and will be key to the Pilgrims play-off push at the table end of the season.
