Club Statement

SIMON Hallett will take over as Argyle chairman when James Brent stands down from the role at the end of October.

Simon, the Pilgrims’ majority shareholder, had intended to continue in his current role as vice-chairman when James leaves the position on October 31.

However, chairman-elect David Felwick has informed the Argyle Board of Directors that, for personal reasons, he is unable to take over the chairmanship at this time.

Consequently, Simon will become the Argyle chairman from November 1.
