The Northern Ireland international is yet to feature under the former Chesterfield boss having suffered a broken ankle in January.

But Sheridan has offered Feeney the chance to earn a contract with the Pilgrims in pre-season.

"The gaffer (Sheridan) has been good enough to throw me this lifeline, if you like, and I do not intend to let the chance go by me," he told the Plymouth Evening Herald.

"I feel incredibly lucky to have been given the opportunity - a lot of clubs and managers would not have been so generous.

"Obviously, I feel frustrated at not being able to go on holiday with my family but at the same time I will make this sacrifice in order to win another contract with Argyle.

"So, I've got about six or seven weeks until the lads return for pre-season and I'm determined to be there, too."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
