Reuben Returns

REUBEN Reid has rejoined Plymouth Argyle for the 2013-14 season.

The 24-year-old striker has signed on a season-long loan from Championship new boys Yeovil Town.

It is the young Bristolian’s third spell at Home Park, where he started out as a professional and where he returned last season for a successful loan.

Reuben spent the second half of the 2012-13 campaign on loan to argyle from the Glovers, spearheading John Sheridan’s side’s successful fight for Football League survival.

“John is one of the main reasons why I signed,” he said. “I enjoyed playing for him and I really think he can get the best out of me.

“When I heard there was interest, I didn’t hesitate and everything happened pretty quickly. I just can’t wait to get back now.

“The football environment at Argyle is another reason for coming back – the staff, the lads, the club itself were all reasons why I wanted to return.”

Reuben started all 18 games last season after his return to Home Park, where he began his career in 2006 before being released by Paul Sturrock, scoring two vital goals in victories over Cheltenham and at Southend.

He believes that the Pilgrims are now well positioned to kick on from their revival during the second half of their previous campaign.

He said: “It is looking good. I hope we can get a good squad together and really push on and achieve things.”
