Rom on and on and on

17 July 2013

NEW Argyle signing Rommy Boco...

...might have barely had a break from playing in the last 15 months, but he cannot wait to make his Argyle debut.

The 28-year-old attacking midfielder has joined the Pilgrims after being released by Accrington Stanley, for who he was all but an ever-present last season.

He joined Stanley immediately after the conclusion of the League of Ireland season, during which he enjoyed success with Sligo Rovers.

“I had a great opportunity to come to a massive club and I can’t wait to get started,” said Rommy.

“Hopefully, we are going to have a good season here.

“I played for Accrington, and had a happy year there, last year. The manager changed and I wanted to have a move.

“Before that, I played for Sligo. We were champions in 2012 and played in Europe as well, so those were good times as well.

“I started the Irish league in January 2012. We had friendlies, league games, cup, European games. After, I signed for Accrington Stanley and played 45 games for them.

“So, in the last 15 months, it’s been a lot of games.”

Benin international Rommy says he is happy to trot out in any position for the Greens “as the manager needs me – I can play wide and I can play central midfield. That will be up to the manager.”

“All I know is that I’m a going to work hard in training and get as much respect as I can from the players.”

Rommy’s international team-mate Reda Johnson, a Pilgrim between 2009-11, had already spoken favourably of his new club before John came calling.

“I haven’t talked to him about me coming in here but he’s talked about Plymouth and said he had some good times here and it’s a big club.

“I will give him a call to chat about it.”
