Ryan Lowe to Remain With Plymouth Argyle Until 2024
Highly Regarded Manager
Lowe is regarded as one of the best ‘up and coming’ managers in the EFL after winning back-to-back promotions from League Two with Bury and Plymouth retrospectively.
The 42-year-old’s success at both clubs has caught the eye of those higher up the divisions. He was linked with the vacant job at Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the season, although nothing ever materialised.
As a result, Lowe has continued to impress at Home Park. He has won 37 of his 79 games in charge of Argyle, with a win rate of just over 46%. 14 of those wins have come this season, with the club enjoy an impressive campaign in all competitions.
Lowe’s attacking style has been one of the several traits highlighted by fans. When speaking to The Guardian, the 42-year-old said his style has been influenced by Jurgen Klopp, as he looks to press high and install a win at all costs mentality.
What Was Said?
Andrew Parkinson, Argyle’s Chief Executive, said to the official Plymouth Argyle website said that Lowe and his assistant Steven Schumacher, who has also signed a new deal, have personalities that the club wish to associate with.
He said: “We are delighted to be able to agree contract extensions for Ryan and Steven.
“Their personal qualities align with those we wish to be associated with the club, and they both hold ambition that matches our own.
“To achieve promotion in their first season was a tremendous achievement, while their emphasis on playing an attractive brand of football and developing our Academy graduates is very exciting for everyone associated with the club.”
Lowe added: “I am delighted to have signed a long-term contract with Plymouth Argyle, and I’m 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 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.”
