Brano Released

ARGYLE have reached an agreement with defender Guy Branston to release him from his contract with immediate effect.

Imposing centre-back Guy, 35, is suffering from an ankle injury which has effectively ended his season and has been advised by manager John Sheridan that he will not be offered another contract when his current deal ends this summer. Therefore, the early termination of his contract will help Brano plan for his future.

Larger than life personality Brano joined the Pilgrims, for a second time, in January 2013, becoming one of John Sheridan’s first signings as manager and was an important part of the Argyle squad that kept the club in the Football League.

This season, he has been hampered by injury, limiting his number of appearances to a total of 32 over the two campaigns.

Previously, Guy had first come to Home Park on a loan deal from his beloved home-town Leicester City, making eight appearances in the 1998-99 season.

He scored his only goal as a Pilgrim in a 1-1 Division Three draw at Rochdale on January 9, 1999.

Everyone at Argyle thanks Brano for his contribution to the Green cause and wishes him well for the remainder of his career.
