Carey On Carrying On

ARGYLE'S second-top goalscorer Graham Carey has reassured the Green Army that...

...he is in it for the long haul after declaring that he sees his long-term future with the club.

“I’m enjoying my football," said Graham, ahead of Saturday's visit to Yeovil Town. "I’m playing in a position where I like to play and the manager gives me freedom, so there’s no reason to change."

The Irish midfield maestro was a summer signing for Pilgrims' boss Derek Adams, who recruited the attack-minded player as a free agent. Adams knew exactly what he was letting himself in for with Carey after managing the him during at Ross County. 

So far this season, the 26-year-old has scored eight goals in all competitions whilst leading the way in the assists stakes, with five to his name. 

Graham has been the main man in many fans' eyes up to now, producing some excellent performances and scoring some sublime goals. A player of Carey’s standard will always arouse suspicion and rumour of what his next move might be, with the Green Army hoping it will be with them. 

Many clubs are rumoured to be interested in the former Celtic playmaker but Argyle’s No. 10 has made no bones about his desire to continue his career with the Pilgrims.

“I see my long-term future here,” said Graham, who made a full comeback from injury for last week's home game against Wycombe Wanderers. 

"[My contract] is the same as everyone else’s - it's game dependent. I just want to get back playing football. I see myself here and I’m enjoying it here, so long may it continue.”

If it does, then Graham sees no reason why he and his talented team-mates cannot win back-to-back promotions.

“Hopefully, we can get promoted and - who knows? We’ve played well against League 1 sides this season so there’s no reason why we can’t keep going again. 

"Getting over that hurdle of getting out of this league is really tough because there are loads of teams trying to get promoted. It’s down to us - the players - to push on."
