Army Rewards

AFTER the trauma of relegation last season and too many fruitless long journeys for the Green Army, Argyle manager Ryan Lowe is setting the tone for a different story this term.

Backed by around 1,700 raucous Pilgrim fans, Argyle opened the Sky Bet League Two campaign with an excellent 3-0 victory at Crewe Alexandra, as Callum McFadzean scored twice and Joel Grant also on target.

Ryan dedicated the win to our wonderful supporters and turned his attention to the visit of Colchester next week, with the atmosphere inside Home Park certain to be something very special.

“The fans have come in their numbers and sometimes you worry about letting them down after travelling all that way,” said the gaffer.

“This win is for them and for coming here in such numbers. Yes, we played the football and scored the goals, but they backed us all the way.

“I’m relishing putting out a style of football for them and they will keep travelling in their numbers to follow us. If we keep putting in performances like that, I’m sure there will be 2,000 next time.

“We know what the fanbase brings, they’re massive. They travelled up and down the country last season and didn’t get what they deserved, but hopefully they’ll get that this season. It’s the first game of the season, we’re not getting carried away, but this win is for them.

“Our attention will turn to Colchester, one of the best teams we played last season, but we will concentrate on us and hopefully Home Park will be packed to the rafters.”
