SATURDAY'S match at Weymouth will be preceded by a minute's silence for former Pilgrim Peter Kearns.

Peter, who also played for and was a director of Weymouth, represented the Pilgrims between 1956-59. He died earlier this month, aged 77, at Weymouth's Queen Charlotte Residential Care Home. 

An inside-forward, he began his career with Wellingborough Town before joining Argyle for £600 at the beginning of the 1956-57 season.

After 67 games, and a brief loan at Corby Town, Peter moved on to hometown Aldershot - and went on to become the club's sixth-highest scorer of all time - before winding up his playing career at then Southern League Weymouth.

After retiring from playing, he worked in the advertising department of the Dorset Evening Echo newspaper and had a spell as a director at Weymouth in the 1990s.
