Bristol Rovers have named Plymouth Argyle's Martyn Starnes as their new chief executive.

A former CEO at Swindon Town and Yeovil Town, Starnes will continue in his role with Plymouth until joining fellow League One club Rovers on 9 July.

He has been with the Home Park outfit since leaving the Glovers in 2013.

"We have been looking to appoint a CEO since acquiring the club and in Martyn we have found the right one," owner Wael Al Qadi told the Rovers website.

"I have known Martyn for a long time and I am confident he will fit in perfectly at the club.

"He brings with him years of experience and professionalism and shares our vision of developing the academy and engaging the community."
