Academy Status

ARGYLE have received written confirmation from the Football League that the Professional Game Board has granted a licence to operate a Category 3 Academy.

The licence is granted for three years, subject to a re-audit in the normal course, and the club will be revisited during next season to determine that it is making progress against the Action Plan, as required.

Academy manager Kevin Hodges said: “I was not expecting this result until later in the season, so this is great news arriving early.

“We know we still have work to do to meet the recommendations made and we will work closely with our Football League Regional Manager to evidence all mandatory requirements.”
