Best Wishes, Luggy

Best Wishes, Luggy

Former Wednesday manager Paul Sturrock has revealed that he's suffering from Parkinson's disease.

Luggy, who helped Wednesday to promotion to the Championship during his first year at Hillsborough, has revealed that he was diagnosed with a mild form of the disease about eight years ago and has come public with the news.

And he's determined to carry on in management with Plymouth Arglye.

'I don't want sympathy, I don't want people feeling sorry for me - I just thought this was the right time to bring things into the open,' he told the BBC.

'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.'

All at Vital Sheffield Wednesday wish Luggy all the best and look forward to seeing him back at Hillsborough with Argyle next season.
