I had my playing career but you have to move on," he said.

I have put a lot of work and time in to try and better myself as a coach, I want to be a coach who helps players, academy players are really important. I was a player who came into the first team at 16, a lot are good enough but don't get the chance.

The clubs I've been at have all had challenges, administration with Derby, I went out to DC to experience something a little bit different, improve and develop, and I found my way here to Argyle and I feel I am the best shape I can be in.

Since January I have had time to reflect on my previous job. Coming here last season with Birmingham, I was really impressed with the fans and the set-up so once this role way available I really wanted to explore it."
