He's come back home, He's come back home...

has Sturrock.

Paul Sturrock has been officially reappointed as manager of Plymouth Argyle. Following Holloway's departure last week, Plymouth Argyle have quickly secured former manager Paul Sturrock, and his backroom staff - Kevin Summerfield and John Blackley.

At 1 o'clock today Paul Sturrock was officially installed as Holloway's predecessor having departed Plymouth in 2004 to manager then Premiership club Southampton. Paul has since managed Sheffield Wednesday, promoting them to the Championship before being sacked and joining Swindon Town. Since Holloway's departure last week it has been on the cards that Surrock will return to Home Park.

Sturrock has said that he is very excited about the players he has inherited and will not be tampering with the squad and its set up. He is ready to face the challenges ahead - including the out of contract players but has said he will not be managing the team verses West Bromwich tomorrow in order that he can get to know the players styles better.

Holloway bemoaned the lack of ambition and finance of the current board, however Stapleton is confident that we will still be able to hold our own in the division and Sturrock is now a vital part of this having been here before and knows the club and what it can and cannot do. Sturrock has been quoted as saying that "we have unfinished business" and Stapleton is very excited by that.

Sturrock has always been a firm favourite amongst Argyle supporters, and although there is a saying that you should never go back, Argyle have turned the clock back 3 years, hopefully Sturrock will once again rise to the challenges and work his magic once again.
