PLY­MOUTH AND BURY GET LIFT-OFF AT LAST

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

GREAT win for my lo­cal club Ply­mouth last week­end, es­pe­cially hav­ing had two abysmal per­for­mances – John Sheri­dan’s words – in their first two games.

And to do it at Chel­tenham, who hadn’t lost at home for 20-odd games, was very im­pres­sive. For me, that was the per­for­mance of the week, in any di­vi­sion.

The re­lief go­ing round Home Park was tan­gi­ble and the ques- tion now is, can they keep it up? I hope so.

In the same vein, well done to my old mate Kevin Black­well,

right, and his as­sis­tant Ron­nie Jep­son, whose Bury side got off the mark with a great 3-0 win over Ac­cring­ton.

That first win lifts a huge weight off you and Kevin and John will have en­joyed train­ing so much more this week.
