LEAGUE ONE Lowe and Schumacher commit to Argyle

Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe and assistant Steven Schumacher have committed long term to the ambitious League One club.

The Greens’ promotion-winning manager has signed a new deal at Home Park, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2024.

The popular Liverpudlian arrived at Argyle in the summer of 2019, implementing an attractive, attacking philosophy that secured an immediate return League One.

Lowe’s assistant Schumacher has also agreed an extension until the end of the 23/24 season.

Argyle Chairman Simon Hallett said: “I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to persuade Ryan and Steven to extend their contracts with Argyle.

“When we sought a new manager in 2019, we were looking for someone who was forward thinking about football and could help us build a foundation for Argyle’s success, both today and tomorrow.

“In Ryan, we’ve got that. He and Steven have proven to be not only forward thinking, but also willing to embrace some of the new ideas that we think will enable us to compete effectively.”

Lowe said: “I am delighted to have signed a long-term contract with Argyle and excited to continue the project we’ve started together.

“We fit well together - this is an ambitious club, and I am an ambitious manager. I would like to thank (CEO) Andrew Parkinson, the Board of Directors and Simon Hallett for making it happen.

“It was a no brainer for us, and we’ve loved every minute of it. I’d like to thank the fans for their support, it will be a lot more special when we are back together.”

While Pilgrims progress is a long-term project, Lowe and Schumacher’s promotion of youth has already seen Academy graduates become first-team regulars, including Wales under-21 striker Luke Jephcott and goalkeeper Mike Cooper.
