WILL Aimson was the one noticeable Pilgrim to sit out Tuesday’s opening pre-season game at Truro City as he continues to recover from a pelvic injury carried over from last season.
The new Argyle recruit is working on a fitness programme with physio Paul Atkinson and Argyle manager Ryan Lowe sees no sense in risking the defender’s health in these early preparatory games.
Lowe, however, did confirm Aimson will be part of the tour to Spain later this month and the boss is confident his summer signing will be ready for the start of the Sky Bet League Two campaign at Crewe on August 3.
“Will had a pelvic injury from last season,” said Ryan. “He is on the road to recovery now and actually getting an injection, which should see it clear up.
“He will travel with us to Spain and we brought in young Michael Peck [against Truro], who was fantastic. Young Adam Randell skippered the team and Klaidi Lolos shows we’ve got some great lads coming through.
“Will has done a lot of work with Paul [Atkinson], a lot of strengthening work and we’ll build him up gradually for the first game of the season because there’s no point in risking him now. He will be fine [for the first game] and ready.”
