Building for Brix

ARGYLE embark on the Walter C Parson Cup, the major knock-out tournament for Peninsula League football, with the visit of Brixham to Seale Hayne on Saturday.

It is a big game for Brixham from Division 1 East of the Peninsula League structure but also an important competition for the Pilgrims, as progress on the weekend opens up the opportunity of taking on sides from the Premier Division.

“We know they will raise their game, as with most teams we face, and we have to match that,” said Head Coach Kevin Nancekivell. “Most teams we’ve played this season have set their stall out to be strong at the back and we’ll have to work hard to break them down. I’m expecting the same on Saturday.

“We want people watching the game and I expect a fair few people to be making the trip from Brixham, as Seale Hayne is relatively close. It should make the day a good Cup-tie atmosphere and we will thrive on that.

“We have to concentrate on getting past Brixham and looking for our lads to improve. The only way you achieve that is through playing games, and confidence is high after scoring six goals last week, so we hope to carry that forward.

“The Peninsula League project is now six weeks old and I’m sure it’s everything our Club hoped it would be. We’ve had first-team pros, Academy players and lads from the Community Trust all working together, playing regular football.”
