PLYMOUTH ARGYLE appoint Derek Adams as manager

Plymouth Argyle crestPlymouth Argyle FC have today appointed former Ross County FC boss Derek Adams as the League Two club’s new first team manager.

Glasgow-born Adams, 39, had two spells as Ross boss – where he was a prolific goal scoring striker – sandwiching a spell as assistant manager to Colin Calderwood at Hibernian FC.

As Ross boss Adams led the Staggies to two famous firsts.

He steered the Staggies to the First Division title and a first promotion to the Scottish top tier in 2012, two seasons after leading County to their first Scottish Cup final.

His drive in getting County into the top flight also secured Adams the PFA manager of the year award in Scotland.

In his first season as a manager Adams led County to the 2008 Scottish Second Division title.

In succeeding John Sheridan as Plymouth boss, Adams becomes the 47th first team manager at Argyle and the 12th Scot to undertake the role.
