Settled Gregg

IT may have been quite the Pilgrimage to come from Scotland to Home Park, but Gregg Wylde says he is enjoying every minute of being an Argyle player.

The former Rangers winger was one of eight players brought to the club by manager Derek Adams, and he praised the welcoming atmosphere around the Theatre of Greens for helping him settle in so quickly at Argyle. 

“It’s been good,” said Wylde. “I’ve enjoyed living down here and it’s a good club to play for. 

“Sometimes it can be [difficult], if you’re moving down from up north, but I think the boys have helped me as well, and I’ve enjoyed every single minute of it. So far, so good. 

“I’ve settled in quite well. The boys have helped and I’ve grown some good friends as well in the squad. I’ve enjoyed it here.” 

The 24-year old has already embedded himself into a tightly-knit group of players that, despite making an excellent start to the 2015-16 campaign, are not resting on their laurels or focusing on their own glory. 

“Everybody knows their position is not safe," said Gregg, "So we work hard in training for our position. The boys are quite close; we’ve got a good morale in the changing room, and we push people forward.”

Gregg is certainly not the only success story of the summer incomings, with the likes of Jake Jervis and Graham Carey making superb starts to their time at Argyle. Wylde is eager for himself and the rest of the squad to help out his former adversaries in Scotland with a few more goals of their own. 

“It’s gelled quite quickly,” said Gregg. “We kind of know each other from Scotland, with Graham at Ross County and Jake as well, and the manager being from Scotland, so I think we’ve gelled quite quickly. 

“Sometimes you can’t rely on players scoring week in, week out. I think everyone needs to chip in, including myself, even the centre halves. Look at Peter [Hartley] last year; he scored six goals, and he said to me in the changing room a few weeks ago that he needs to start scoring. I think the boys know we need to chip in.

“Hopefully I can chip in with more [goals]. If not, it’s going to be assists from the wing. We’ve got a group of players who can play attacking, not just the front three, so it’s going quite well at the moment.”
