Green Futures

12 August 2016

GARY Sawyer believes the future of Argyle is in good hands.

The Pilgrims defender has welcomed the club’s decision to award manager Derek Adams a new four-year contract on the eve of the current Sky Bet League Two season.

“It’s a massive bonus for the club to have him stand in front of you for the next four years,” said Gary. “It is good times for the club, I think.

“He’s done so well and he’s a really good manager – everyone enjoys working with him. To see that he’s got a good contract – he deserves that – helps. 

“A lot of times now, you play with a manager who has only got a one-year deal, so it’s a lot better for the future of the club if you give a manager as good as Derek this chance.”

Derek has infused 13 new players with Gary and eight other Pilgrims who took Argyle to the play-off final last season, which has resulted in a situation much desired by managers – competition for places.

“We have got a lot of depth,” said Gary. “The other day, when we had the team doing set-pieces and the boys that weren’t playing were doing a little bit extra, you looked across and all of them potentially could or should be playing. 

“I’ve got Ben [Purrington] behind me and Ben’s a fantastic player. I know I have to be at it, else he will play. That goes throughout the whole team; everyone knows they can be taken out, which is a good thing.”
