Armed Services Day - Do It With Pride

7 April 2016

WE’RE proud of our city.

We’re proud of our Armed Servicemen and women.

We’re proud of our club.

This weekend, all that comes together when the Green Army has the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with the service personnel of the city of Plymouth and the Westcountry.

The Pilgrims’ home Sky Bet League 2 game against AFC Wimbledon, on Saturday, April 9, is the club’s eighth annual Armed Services Day, where the club pays tribute to our forces and their families.

With just six matches left this season, it is a crucial game in Argyle’s promotion push to League 1.

Many activities will take place around Home Park leading up to the game’s kick off at 3pm. An hour before then, inside the Theatre of Greens, there is a Field Gun Association Junior Team Challenge – two teams of youngsters staging their version of the famous Royal Navy obstacle race. 

This is followed by musical displays from the TS Golden Hind Horn Pipe Display team; HMS Heroes Military Kids Choir; and the Royal Marines Volunteer Cadet Corps of Drums. 

The final part of the preliminaries will see Home Park stand to sing the National Anthem. 

So let’s get a full stadium to create an atmosphere to remember and show full support for, not only the important job the armed services do, but to the players of Plymouth, too.

Match day tickets can be brought from the ticket office or online and are £2 cheaper if brought prior to the day of the game, so don’t delay, get your match day tickets now for what is set to be a thrilling encounter in an important match for both sides. 

All veterans of the second world war will be admitted free to the game, and to all future Argyle games at Home Park.

A collection will be taken at the match on behalf of the Plymouth branch of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, the armed forces charity which helps serving and retired servicemen and their families in their times of need. 

So, let’s pay tribute to our military.

Let’s get behind manager Derek Adams and the team representing our city. 

Let’s push them on to promotion to Sky Bet League 1 by singing our hearts out.  

We’re proud of our city.

We’re proud of our Armed Servicemen and women.

We’re proud of our club.

We’re all in this together.
