ARGYLE manager John Sheridan has already strengthened the Pilgrims this summer, and wants to add more to his exciting new mix.The signing of new boys Lewis Alessandra, from Morecambe, and Dominic Blizzard, from Yeovil Town, has certainly grabbed the imagination of a lot of Argyle fans and both are relishing the new challenge ahead of them.
Twenty-four year old winger Lewis, who John gave a debut to when he was manager of Oldham Athletic, had spent two successful seasons at the Shrimps, having made an impressive 82 league appearances and scoring seven goals for them.
John said: “I’m pleased – so far. I know Lewi from Oldham and he can be an excellent player; he’s at an age now where he can push on with his talent. I think we could guide him into becoming a strong player and getting us out this league.”
Dominic, 27, played a key role in midfield for Yeovil last season, helping them get promoted to the Championship. He made a very respectable 60 appearances in two seasons for the Glovers, scoring four league goals.
John said: “Obviously Dom is proven, having played in the first division throughout his career and he has been at some good clubs. I think he’s someone who could help us, just being simple and ticking over. That’s what I like about him.”
Dom and Lewi are unlikely to be the last summer arrivals at Home Park.
John said: “I’m looking to bring in probably another two or three players if I can get them, and that will make us a lot stronger.
“I’m in still in the process of making offers to one or two players and hopefully something will come out in the next couple of days, or whenever it has to be.
“At this moment in time I’m positive that we’ll get the players sooner, rather than later.
“I’m after a striker. Everyone knows what I’m after: a left-winger, a striker and possibly a left-back, so there’s no hiding it.
“We’ve got people here who can play in those positions and I’m looking to have a very strong squad. They’re the positions I have identified and I would like to bring in and fill in the gaps that need filling.”
