From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Johnny Hore (born Foxhole near St Austell February 10, 1947) is a former football player and manager.

Hore appeared for Plymouth Argyle in midfield or as full back on 440 occasions. It was his task to mark Pelé when Santos lost to Argyle 3-2 at Home Park in March 1973. He finished his playing career at Exeter City.

He was appointed manager of Argyle on October 1, 1983. However, his managerial career was shortlived, owing to his lack of success in the league, he was dismissed on November 19, 1984.

In his 60 game stint as manager he won 17 games, lost 27 and drew 16. The highlight, for which he is most renowned, was leading Argyle to an FA Cup semi-final. A defeat to Watford meant that Argyle did not become the first team from the Third Division to reach the final.

He returned to Exeter City as coach and then caretaker manager before moving into management in local non-league football.
