Argyle Director Of Football Setback

Plymouth Argyle faces a set-back to appoint a Director of Football.

The club intended to announce their choice this week but a club statement released today reveals that their target is looking at a role at another club.

Former Colchester United manager John Ward (pictured above) was believed to have been the man selected by the Argyle board to take up the post as Director of Football at Home Park but it appears Ward is now interested in the vacant managerial position at fellow League Two strugglers Bristol Rovers.

The club intends to continue its search for a Director of Football to help Pilgrims' manager Carl Fletcher.

The club statement released on the official website:

'We had planned to appoint a Director of Football this week.

'Following a detailed interview process involving more than 20 high-quality applicants, we offered the position to someone.

'However, that person is now looking at another appointment, so we have decided to look elsewhere.

'We continue to believe in the merits of appointing a Director of Football, and our aim remains to complete the process as quickly as possible.

'However, this is a key role for the club and we will not hurry into a potentially poor appointment.'
