Carl Fletcher named permanent manager at Plymouth Argyle

Former West Ham midfielder Carl Fletcher has been appointed as the permanent manager of League Two side Plymouth Argyle.

The 31-year-old has been in caretaker charge since September following Peter Reid’s departure and has overseen two wins and a draw in his seven games in charge.

Happier times are afoot at Home Park with the financial future of the club secured and Fletcher and his assistant Roman Larrieu are looking to extend that feel-good factor to on-the-pitch affairs: “It’s good that everything is taken over, and it’s nice we can concentrate on the football side of things.” Fletcher told BBC Sport.

“There are things we wanted to change that we haven’t been able to, considering the position of the club. Hopefully, we can get that sorted now. Both me and Ro want to do well for the club and for everyone here to try and get the club back to where it belongs.”

Plymouth currently sit bottom of the division on just eight points and will be hoping to spring a shock and narrow the five point gap to safety when they host 3rd placed Morecambe on Saturday.
