5,000 Miles To Watch Argyle

Welcome to Home Park

13 August 2019

ARGYLE are delighted to welcome Roger Jefford to Home Park this evening for our Carabao Cup First Round tie against Leyton Orient.

A lifelong Argyle fan, 76-year-old Jefford has flown and travelled 5,000 miles to watch the Pilgrims tonight.

Roger’s journey to The Theatre of Greens started in Vancouver, Canada and, after a 10-hour long flight, landed in Kent. The stretch from Kent to Plymouth was longer than anticipated – taking seven and half hours due to traffic.

Joined at the match tonight by his daughter Julie, Roger is hoping to buy a new Argyle shirt before kick-off to wear with pride as he cheers on the side, which he first saw play in 1951.
