Still Got the Buzz

EXPERIENCED Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick still gets that opening day sensation.

The Pilgrims skipper is looking forward to starting the season on Saturday when Argyle play Peterborough away.

"We’re looking forward to - not necessarily the trip to Peterborough - but certainly the start of the whistle on Saturday at 3 o'clock.

“You look across the fixture list and there are no easy games. Peterborough are well set up in League One, we know that they’re very good going forward so we’re going to have to be at our best really to come out with a result. 

“We go there confident in ourselves, in what we can do and it should be a good opener. 

“We’ve spent a long time in League Two, longer than what we wanted but now we’re out of that we’ve got a new test in front of us. We’re looking forward to getting started and I’m sure the fans are to seeing new places.

“We’re moving in the right direction and that promotion that we got last year is a huge part of that. There are more demands from us as players and the club as a whole but it’s good, it means progression. We’ll see what we can do this season.” 

The number 23 is confident with the backing of the Green Army and knows it will help the team in the same way that it has done throughout the last few seasons. “We’re taking over 1000 fans up to Peterborough so that says it all really. 

“We’re hoping we can continue with our momentum that we had from last year and take that on and equally with the fans backing behind us it’s a huge push. We’re going to have to count on that again this season."
