Hodges Leaves Academy

KEVIN Hodges has left Plymouth Argyle, stepping down from his position as Academy Director with immediate effect.

Kevin, 59, has also served Argyle as a player and manager in an association with the club that goes back more than 40 years.

He made his first-team debut in 1978 and went on, over the next 14 years, to play 620 first-team games, 129 more appearances than any other Pilgrim in the club’s history.

Kevin managed the club between 1998-2000, a period which will be more remembered for the introduction of players like Steve Adams, Martin Phillips and Ian Stonebridge than it will for two mid-table League Two finishes.

He returned to work in the club’s Football in the Community project in 2008 and, two years later, moved to the club’s Academy. Initially, he was Under-18s coach, becoming head coach in 2012 and then Academy manager before, in 2017, being appointed Academy Director. 

We wish Kevin well in his future endeavours.
