It looked as though security had come Paul Sturrock's way, on this day in 2006.

But just five weeks and three games after agreeing a fresh four-year contract at Hillsborough, he was given the boot.

Sturrock, who left the club on October 19, wasn't out of work long. Swindon announced him as their new manager on November 7. 

There he won promotion to League One. 

Sturrock, now aged 61 and nicknamed ‘Luggy,’ returned to Plymouth in November 2007.
