Love and Carey

GRAHAM Carey’s current Home Park adventure is his second stint in England, following a not terribly productive League 1 spell at Huddersfield Town in 2010-11

...and he is happy with the way life with the promotion-chasing Pilgrims is progressing.

“It’s been good; it’s been competitive; there has been some good football, at times,” said the 26-year-old Irishman on the eve of the Pilgrims’ home Sky Bet League 2 game against already-relegated Dagenham & Redbridge.

“I think the standard of the league has gone up since last time I was down here. There are lot of teams that want to play good football, and we’re one of them but the main thing is winning.

“I’m happy; my family is happy; I enjoy my football here; I enjoy working under the gaffer; everything suits me down here.

“I couldn’t be happier, playing every week and playing with the group of lads that we have. I don’t think you’ll find a tighter group in the division. 

“We have a very good squad – probably one of the best in the league, I think; the young lads coming in, like Ben Purrington, don’t look out of place. It’s up to players on the pitch to keep the jersey because we have quality players on the bench to come on and change, if not win, games.”
