The Argyle Weekend
WHILE the first-team enjoy a well-earned break from their hectic schedule this weekend, it is back to action for the young Pilgrims and Plymouth Argyle Ladies.
The football starts with a game against Newport County in the EFL Youth Alliance on Saturday morning, kicking off at 11am in Tavistock.
We then move to Coach Road and a first home game in over two months for the Pilgrims in the Carlsberg South-West Peninsula League.
Newquay are the visitors for the 3pm kick-off in Newton Abbot and a chance for Argyle to maintain their lead at the top of the division if we can record what would be a tenth straight victory.
It is over to Argyle Ladies on Sunday and a difficult trip to Chichester City, who beat the Pilgrims on the opening day of the season, in the FA Women’s National League Southern Division.
Argyle will have a new signing in the squad after the versatile Leah Burridge made the move from Yeovil Town and a natural replacement for Becky Wakley, who has struggled with injury and travelling, and leaves with the club’s best wishes.
The Argyle development team enter the New Year as leaders of the FA Women’s South-West League Western Division and welcome Weston-super-Mare on Sunday.
There was good news for Greek defender Panagiota Papioannou, as she has been called into the Greece Under-20 squad for a training camp taking place in January.
