First-Team Assistant Manager

Steven Schumacher

First-Team Staff



Date of birth






Steven Schumacher joined Argyle as assistant manager to Ryan Lowe after the duo left Bury at the end of the 2018-19 season.

‘Schuey,’ a combative goalscoring midfielder, started his career in 2002 with his boyhood club Everton, and he also captained England at under-19 level. Having spent time on loan at Oldham and Carlisle, Schuey joined Bradford permanently upon the expiry of his Goodison Park deal in 2004.

After three years with the Bantams and then Crewe Alexandra, Schumacher joined Bury in 2013. He captained the Shakers during his time at Gigg Lane and enjoyed his best goalscoring return, scoring 23 in 114 games.

Fleetwood was his next destination, where he played over 60 times for the Cod Army before turning out for Stevenage and then non-league Southport.

He called time on his playing career in 2018 to become assistant to Ryan Lowe, where, in their first season in the dugout together, they led Bury to Sky Bet League Two promotion.
