Former Swindon Town manager Paul Sturrock has revealed he is suffering from Parkinsons Disease.

Sturrock made the revelation at a press conference where his current club, Plymouth Argyle are playing.

Speaking to the media Sturrock said, ‘It doesn’t really affect me, unless I forget to take a tablet – and then I just get a few tremors in my hand or my leg,’ he said.
‘It will not affect the way I go about my job. There’s plenty of life in the old dog yet.’

Luggy as he is known to fans, spent just over a year at the County Ground and guided Swindon Town to promotion back to League One during the 2006/07 season.

  • Nice man who always makes me smile with his antics… Hope he works for a long as he can.. Football would be less without him…

  • Don’t think he’s the type to dwell on it but just get on with life – and best wishes to him… Another of the games characters and one of the shrewdest managers I believe we have had at Swindon.
