A number of fractures when he was younger left David with problems in his feet and ankles. He lived in the US for 15...

Cold comfort away from home for Argyle

Authored by George Dawson

Argyle came within two minutes of deservedly taking something home from the Valley after another performance which promised much but delivered nothing.

Already without three defenders, they lost two more to injury – as well as midfielder Antoni Sarcevic – during a game played at a relentless pace which was settled by Karlan Grant’s late goal.

Grant had already netted once, in...

Argyle still looking for first win of the season after being beaten at home by Blackpool

Authored by George Dawson

Argyle's search for a first Sky Bet League One victory of the season continues.

Mark Cullen’s early goal was enough to shade an encounter which was largely as close as the scoreline suggests and which might have been different had referee Neil Hair seen Blackpool’s Donervon Daniels handle the ball inside his penalty area, or if Freddie Ladapo’s ingenuity had not been denied by a...

First away point for Argyle

Authored by George Dawson

ARGYLE have their first away point, and Bristol Rovers have their first home point.

That is the sum total of what came out of a game which spotlighted two teams short on wins, points and confidence.

It was a game not devoid of action, as each side had periods of offence in which it looked like a goal must surely follow, but particularly good saves by each side's goalkeeper were...

Argyle full of the joys of Spring

Authored by News Desk

Good Friday became Feelgood Friday at Home Park as Argyle bounced back from their Valley depression to re-fan the flames of their Sky Bet League One promotion desires.

Less than a week after they lost their eight-game unbeaten run at Charlton Athletic, the Pilgrims lived up to their post-match promise to start another streak with a ninth win from their last ten matches at Home Park....

Plymouth Argyle 2 Blackburn Rovers 0

Authored by News Desk

BLACKBURN Rovers arrived at Home Park unbeaten in 18 Sky Bet League One matches and left a well beaten side. Argyle’s rapid improvement this season is no longer the division’s best kept secret.

First-half goals from Ruben Lameiras and Ryan Taylor crowned a fine team performance from a side that was bottom of the table when these two met in mid-October but who are on such a run of form...

Rotherham Utd 1 Plymouth Argyle 1: Match report

Authored by News Desk

IT was nearly a perfect homecoming for Ryan Taylor.

Much of the latter part of 2017 has been a nightmare for the forward, who was injured in Argyle's season opener at Peterbrough, and remained crocked until earlier this month.

After regaining his place in the side, he led the line at Rotherham United, his first club, in the town where he was born. And scored what looked like...

Plymouth Argyle 2 Gillingham 1: Match report

Authored by Mike Page

TOUMANI Diagouraga timed his first Argyle goal to perfection, netting a last-minute winner to lift the Pilgrims off the bottom of Sky Bet League One.

Toums, as he is – thankfully – known by everyone, slotted home in front of the Devonport end after the Pilgrims, who took the lead through Joel Grant early in the second half, looked like they might have to settled for a share of the...
