Plymouth Appoint Carl Fletcher As Permanent Manager

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 01 November 2011, 15:49

Just a day after coming out of administration Plymouth have appointed Carl Fletcher as their manager on a permanent basis. Fletcher was placed in charge as caretaker manager following the sacking of Peter Reid back in September and after overseeing a gradual improvement in the club's form the 31- year-old has today been handed the job full-time, with goalkeeper Romain Larrieu installed as his number two.

Fletcher led Argyle to two wins and a draw in his seven games in charge as caretaker manager. During his career he played for the likes of West Ham, Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace, and has made over 100 appearances for The Pilgrims as well as picking up 36 caps for Wales, with whom he has also captained. The news of Fletcher's appointment comes less than 24 hours after the club came out of administration following their takeover by businessman James Brent. Now that the takeover has been made the club will now focus on improving their position in the table. At the moment they are rock-bottom, five points adrift of safety, and the 1/4 favourites with Paddy Power to get relegated for the third year in a row.

Fletcher's first official match in charge as Plymouth manager will be at home to Morecambe this Saturday. The visitors have had an impressive start to the season and are currently in third place with 29 points from 16 matches. Contrast this to Plymouth who sit bottom with just eight points from the same amount of games. Paddy Power have Morecambe as the 4/5 favourites for the win, while Plymouth are priced at 3/1 to record their second home win of the season, with a draw is available at 5/2.
