Plymouth Argyle will be appointing a new head of physiotherapy to replace Dave Galley, who is taking up a part-time role instead.
Galley has been with the Pilgrims since December 2019 when he was brought to Home Park by manager Ryan Lowe as the successor to the long-serving Paul Atkinson.
Lowe told Plymouth Live : "We are looking for a new physio but Dave is still going to be around with us.

"We wanted two. We feel that when one is away (at games) the other can work with injured players. To be fair to the board, they have allowed us to have two physios.
"Dave loves it here and he wants to keep helping us and stay a part of it. We have looked for a head physio because Dave will take less responsibility but still oversee a few things.
"Basically, Dave is going to go part-time and we are going to get another in as the head physio."
An advertisement for the role read: "An immediate and exciting opportunity has arisen to join Plymouth Argyle Football Club’s medical and sports science department.

"The successful applicant will be joining a well-respected and forward-thinking medical and sports science department who promote the health and wellbeing of the playing staff.
