Pilgrim Punting - Cambridge

8 August 2014

PUNTING in Cambridge in one of the beauties of a British summer.

Take out a barge, make your way down the river Cam and marvel at the glorious College buildings. What a way to spend an afternoon.

Yep, sounds fun - but it isn't football, is it?

You can keep the trips on the river. We will go for the opening game of the season every single time. Not only for our entertainment, but also for our punting.

Sky Bet are the official title sponsor of the Football League, and remember that every time you bet with them - provided you have registered with them as an Argyle fan - it benefits our club. Additionally, this season, a £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund will go to a Football League club to spend on players in the January 2015 transfer window.

Fans who bet with Sky Bet generate Transfer Fund Tokens and go into a random draw to win a £5,000 prize – and the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for their Football League club.

Argyle are 9/5 with Sky Bet to kick the season off with a winning start. Fancy adding a bit of value? Our two most common winning margins last season were 1-0 and 2-1; you can get 1-0 to Argyle at Cambridge at 15/2, while 2-1 is 9/1.

As you might expect, Reuben Reid (6/1) and Lewis Alessandra (7/1) are prominent when it comes to the favourites to score the games first goal, but how about a cheeky bet on our new skipper? Curtis Nelson is 25/1 to score the first goal at the Abbey Stadium - and he may even take out a punt and sail away down the river.

Admiral Lord Nelson once said: "I see no ships." Our Captain Nelson sees no reason why we can't start the season with three points.
