A Trusted Manager

AS we head into the second-half of the Sky Bet League Two season, the inevitable contract question will start becoming more prominent in press conferences hosted by Argyle manager Ryan Lowe.

It is the nature of modern football at this level for a lot of players to be signed on shorter contracts than years gone by but the Pilgrims awaiting updates on a new deal at Home Park know they have a boss they can trust.

Ryan proved that with many of the lads he worked with at his former club, Bury, some of whom have since joined him at Home Park, and there is a simple philosophy that hard work and good results will bring rewards.

“The good thing with the lads I brought down is they know that if they do well for me, I’ll do well for them,” said Ryan.

“I think that’s probably got around the dressing room and that’s the way I am. For the lads who are out of contract, we’ve had discussions and I think we’ve got five signed players for next season.

“Hopefully, we will have a good season and I will reward those who keep putting their bodies on the line, keep winning games, scoring goals and keeping clean sheets.  

“They know they’ve got a manager they can trust and I’ll make sure that if everything is right contractually, they are rewarded.”
