The Greatest Pilgrims

THE closing date for the goalkeeper vote is on Friday, June 7.

We are delighted to announce the opening of the largest poll yet to find the greatest ever Pilgrims over the 133 years of our proud Plymouth Argyle history.

Sponsored by the Big Green Lottery, our summer vote will be all down to the Green Army, as we seek to find the top 25 Pilgrims in every position.

In the event of a player who has represented Argyle in multiple positions, we will decide the position in which they had more prominence during their Pilgrim career. There are no limits to the vote, as we seek a spread of Green legends throughout the history of our football club.

To give you some help along the way, we highly recommend the superb Greens on Screen as a resource to search for players and managers.

The poll will be divided into the seven categories below and voting is very simple: just send us an email to listing your top five in each of the positions below.

Alternatively, please just complete this Google form to submit your vote.

Greatest Pilgrim Categories

Once we receive your top five from each position, points will be allocated as follows to each nominee.

First choice: 10 points
Second choice: 7 points
Third choice: 5 points
Fourth choice: 3 points
Fifth choice: 1 point

The vote is now open and will run through the summer. Once the results have been counted, we will then reveal the top 25 in each position and the Green Army will be given the opportunity to purchase collectable cards from this definitive list.

There will be different closing dates for each category, as we unveil the winners through the summer. The closing dates are listed below.
