Former Swindon Boss Sturrock Has Parkinsons

Former Swindon Boss Sturrock Has Parkinsons

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...

Luggy has had this for 8 years so I dare say he will be fine! All the best to Luggy!

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.
