PLYMOUTH Argyle manager Derek Adams has given the League Two club a major boost ahead of the start of the 2016/17 season by signing a new four-year deal at Home Park.

Adams, who took over from John Sheridan last summer, is now committed to Argyle until 2020.

The 41-year-old Scot took the Pilgrims to Wembley in his debut season. It was only the second time in the club’s history they had played at the home of English football.

Adams has rebuilt the squad this summer in the hope that Argyle can go one better than last year and secure a place in League One.

The Greens begin their campaign on Saturday when they entertain Luton Town at Home Park.

“Derek has already made a major contribution to Plymouth Argyle and the board believes he has much more to offer,” said Argyle chairman James Brent.

“Much of what football clubs do is focused on the ‎current season and yet, to achieve sustainable success, we believe that plans need to be implemented for the medium-term, as well.”
