We Begin Again

29 July 2016

THE wait is nearly over.

Argyle v West Bromwich Albion.

Argyle and WBA.

We Begin Again.

Eleven weeks exactly since that balmy May evening when Peter Hartley sent Plymouth into ecstasy and Argyle to Wembley, football returns to Home Park this Saturday, July 30.

The wait is nearly over...

...to collect your 2016-17 Membership pack from the Argyle Ticket Office. 

The pack includes your fixture card for the new Sky Bet League Two season, a letter of welcome from manager Derek Adams and, of course, your all-important Membership card, which admits you to all 23 league games in the forthcoming campaign. 

The Ticket Office will be open from 10am on Saturday, seven and a half hours ahead of the 5.30pm kick-off for our final pre-season friendly match against the Barclay’s Premier League Baggies. 

The wait is nearly over...

...to wear your 2016-17 colours with pride. This season’s green home, white away and white home goalkeeper kits will be ready to collect and on sale from the Home Park Superstore, available in all sizes, from mini-kits to XXL.

Just like the Ticket Office, the Superstore will be open for what is anticipated to be brisk business from 10am.

The wait is nearly over...

...to pick up your brand new Plymouth Argyle Handbook. 

Handbooks used to be one of the great Argyle traditions, a summary of the season gone by and a look ahead to the one about to begin. We have revived that tradition and the handbook will be available to buy on Saturday. It contains a thorough match-by-match review of 2015-16, including an in-depth look at the Wembley play-off final, together with exclusive columns by Derek Adams, James Brent and Martyn Starnes, lots of behind-the-scenes features, bundles of stats, and a host of memories – all for just £10.

The wait is nearly over...

...to see quality Premier League opposition at Home Park, and to greet two former Home Park greats.

Baggies’ manager Tony Pulis became Argyle manager in September 2005. He took over with the Championship Pilgrims in 20th place, two points off bottom spot; by the end of the campaign, they were solidly mid-table following 11 wins and 15 draws from his 37 games in charge.

His win percentage was remarkably similar to that of  his assistant, then and now, David Kemp, when he was in charge at the same level 16 years earlier.  Before that, Kempy had been a prolific and adored Argyle striker, scoring 45 goals in 95 games between 1979-81 and being named Player of the Season in the second of his two years at the club.

The wait is nearly over...

...to welcome back home Derek Adams and his Pilgrims after an impressive, unbeaten, goal-laden pre-season campaign. Derek has assembled a new-look first-team squad which contains 13 new signings, including internationals David Goodwillie and Nauris Bulvitis. Striker David has already hit double-figures in pre-season including one in Argyle’s most recent victory, a splendid 2-1 win over Dutch second-tier side MVV Maastricht, while fellow new boy Jimmy Spencer and last year’s leading scorer Jake Jervis have also been among the goals.

The wait is nearly over.
