Branston excited by reunion with Sheridan at Argyle
DEFENDER Guy Branston is excited about being reunited with new Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan at Home Park.
Branston today signed a contract with the Pilgrims until the end of the season.
The no-nonsense 34-year-old centre-back has gone straight into the squad for the League Two game against Morecambe at Home Park tomorrow (3pm).
He has previously played for Sheridan at Oldham Athletic so knows what to expect from him.

Branston told Herald Sport: "He doesn't suffer fools and I'm not a fool. He wants somebody to come in here and be vocal and be a defender.
"You get that with me. I'm not going to bring the ball down on my chest and cause a problem for the defence.
"I'm going to clear it and get up the pitch. Hopefully, if we can keep clean sheets we will score goals because we have got some talented young lads here."
Branston signed for Aldershot Town in the summer but he had his contract with them terminated by mutual consent on January 3.
He made only five appearances for the Shots, with one of them coming against Argyle.
That was in a Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Home Park on October 9, when the Pilgrims came out on top 2-1.
Branston was injured, but at the game, when Argyle lost 2-0 to Aldershot in their League two season-opener in August.
He has also seen DVDs of the Pilgrims in action over the festive period, when they drew 1-1 at home to Torquay United and lost 2-1 at Bristol Rovers.
Branston said: "I know my football and I know who's a good player and who's a bad player.
"There are definitely some good players here. I have got a lot of time for (Durrell) Berry and (Curtis) Nelson as defenders.
"I'm a big fan of (Joe) Lennox, and (Luke) Young is getting a good resume for what he has done.
"We have just signed a really top striker in Ronan (Murray). I played with him when he was on loan at Torquay.
"The gaffer (Sheridan) knows I like working hard with the young lads and trying to improve them because I want to step into that later in my career."
