Disability Team In National Final

ARGYLE’S Disability team booked their place in the Disability Cup final with a 5-0 victory over Colchester based Living4Life FC.

As a result, the Pilgrims were crowned southern champions and will now face northern counterparts Boston United in the final at St George’s Park on Sunday, May 12.

Having brushed aside Exeter City in an earlier round, the Pilgrims travelled to Basingstoke for the regional final to face Living4Life.

After nearly a four hour journey by mini bus, Argyle arrived in a positive mood. 

The Pilgrims elected to kick off and showed their intent within minutes when Mike Lopez narrowly failed to score from Ben Simmons left wing cross.

Argyle continued to dominate and eventually went ahead in the 15th minute when Steve Bunker fired his side in front.

Goals from Simmons and captain Stuart Richardson made it 3-0 at the break before Martyn Bovey grabbed the Pilgrims’ fourth.

With the Argyle comfortably in front, a number of substitutes entered the fray and it was not long before the game was wrapped up, when Jamie Poyntz put the icing on the cake with a fifth goal.

All sessions are £4 and are held at Lipson Community College on the Astro Pitch.
