Chairman's January Pledge

ARGYLE owner James Brent, chairman of the Sky Bet League 2 table-toppers, has promised Boardroom support for manager Derek Adams’ squad-strengthening plans in the New Year.

In an exclusive article published in the Argyle match-day programme for their eagerly-anticipated Home Park Boxing Day clash with Yeovil, James has pledged assistance for Derek when the transfer window opens on January 2.

“I have been asked several times whether the Board will back the manager in the transfer window,” writes James, in the Pilgrim. “‎Of course we will, and we hope that the squad in the second half of the season will be even stronger than the squad which led the league for a large part of the first half.”

The Argyle owner does, however, sound a note of caution which will be echoed by all Pilgrims who remember the pain of the club’s administration at the beginning of the decade.

He says: “Your Board wants promotion as much as other members of the Green Army but not at the cost which financial recklessness might bring.”
