In The Green Corner

THE Argyle squad swapped shin pads for fighting pads on Tuesday.

Performance Manager John Harbin took a session in which the lads were asked to summon up a different kind of fighting spirit. The Pilgrim pugilists donned some training gloves and combined punching power with cardio in a 'boxercise' session.

It was a group low in number - several members of the squad were playing in the U21 fixture at Gillingham - but it did feature Jason Banton and Deane Smalley, as they recover from knocks, and apprentice Ryan Lane, himself recovering from a long-term injury.

Below, you can view some footage of the training session, along with some words from John on just why the lads undertook such a workout.
