Andre Leaves

ANDRE Blackman has left Argyle.

The 23-year-old defender joined the Pilgrims in August on a short-term deal that the club has decided not to extend following its expiry at the weekend.

Andre debuted on the opening-day Sky Bet League 2 defeat at Southend, and went on to make five further starts for the Pilgrims, as well as three substitute appearances. Only one of those games resulted in an Argyle victory, the 1-0 home win over Rochdale at the end of August.

His sole goal came in the 2-1 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat at Swindon Town, and his final appearance was in a 0-0 draw against Newport County at Home Park on October 22.

“We wish him well,” said Argyle first-team coach Gary Owers.

“It’s never nice when you have to move on, but Andre is someone who has shown that he’s got ability and I hope, for his sake, he can find a new club and go on and show someone what he can really do.”

Everyone at Home Park joins Gary in wishing Andre all the best in his future career and thanks him for his contribution to the Green cause.
