Plymouth chairman Gardner welcomes Reid appointment

Plymouth Argyle are delighted with the appointment of Peter Reid as new manager.

Former Sunderland, Manchester City and Thailand boss Reid left his No2 post at Stoke City to take charge at the League One club.

Ex-Manchester United chairman Sir Roy Gardner, now in charge at Plymouth, said: "We said all along that we were seeking a man with proven experience who could help us realise our aspirations and ambitions - we want to get back to the Championship and, after that, move on. Peter fits that criteria perfectly.

"He is an international manager and player, and, domestically, he has achieved success in both spheres at the highest echelon.

"He also knows how to mix it outside the Premiership, winning lower league titles on the pitch and from the sidelines.

"He is well connected, commands respect, and has a depth of knowledge of the game that few of his peers can match."
