Kelvin Looking To Scale New Heights
27th June 2014
OF his 104 career appearances, Kelvin Mellor has made two of them at Wembley - and won both times.His first time playing under the famous arch was for Crewe Alexandra in a 2-0 win against Cheltenham Town in the 2012 League 2 play-off final. A year later, he was back, helping the Alex to lift the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Trophy, defeating Southend United by the same scoreline.
Mellor signed for Argyle on a free transfer on Thursday, and the right back believes that he and his new team-mates have the potential to achieve promotion from - maybe even paying another visit to the home of English football along the way.
"That would be unbelievable," said Kelvin. "I can't really picture it any better to be honest, if that happened.
"It was a hell of a day to remember both times. I cherish those moments, and I'm just looking to kick on now."
"It's a tough league, because a lot of the teams are similar, and play similar football. But hopefully we've got the quality to push on and get promoted."
Home Park will become the Kelvin's second permanent home since turning professional, and his good impressions of the club played a part in his decision to join the Pilgrims
Said Kelvin: "It's a fair distance from here, so it's like a new world, to be fair. I've never been away from home so it's a new challenge.
"For starters, the manager is well-known. There is a good following with the supporters. I just want to play football.
"It was a long journey, but well worth it. I can't wait to get started now and see what the season brings."
