Plymouth Argyle Legend Paul Wotton has signed a one-year contract extension.

The 35-year old will also take up a role with the Youth Academy as a Senior Professional Development Coach.

This fantastic news will please all Argyle fans and is another vital piece of the jigsaw completed by manager John Sheridan as he builds a squad capable of success in League Two next season.

Wotton returned to Home Park in January 2012 and was instrumental in helping the club avoid relegation during that season; the Plymothian also played a crucial role in the Greens staying up at the end of last season.

Wotton has made 475 appearances for Argyle and is third in the Pilgrims’ all-time appearance list, just 16 games behind second-place Sammy Black.
Speaking to the club official website Wottsy said: ‘I’m thrilled.

‘I’m really enjoying my football; I’m still enjoying my training; and I’m really happy.
‘At the same time, I have got a role in the Academy which I am looking forward to.
‘I would like to think that, after 600 games, I have something to pass on to the next generation of Argyle players.

‘To sum it all up, it’s a dream job.’
