PILGRIMS ‘JUST LIKE FINE WINE’

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

PLY­MOUTH Ar­gyle chair­man James Brent is rais­ing a glass to pro­mo­tion but is al­ready look­ing ahead.

Fol­low­ing back-to-back rel­e­ga­tions from the Cham­pi­onship and League One, he as­sumed con­trol in Oc­to­ber 2011, tak­ing the club out of ad­min­is­tra­tion.

After get­ting stuck in the EFL’s bot­tom tier, the Pilgrims are now go­ing up.

“It’s the prod­uct of five years’ work from a lot of peo­ple who have re­ally put their heart and soul into the club,” he said.

“I think 2016-17 has been a vin­tage year, but it feels like Ar­gyle is a fine wine and has a lot fur­ther to go.”
