Plymouth Argyle welcomes the decision made at Tuesday’s EFL meeting to end the 2019/20 Sky Bet League Two season.
While our first preference would always have been to finish our exciting season on the pitch and push to win the league, the safety of players, staff and supporters is of utmost priority.
The club is delighted to have achieved our pre-season objective of an immediate return to Sky Bet League One and would like to congratulate first-team manager Ryan Lowe and his staff on an outstanding achievement during their first year at Home Park.
Chief executive officer Andrew Parkinson said: “We are pleased that a solution for the end of the season has been reached after weeks of uncertainty, and, of course, delighted that it results in promotion for Argyle.
“That said, we are disappointed not to be able to celebrate this promotion on the pitch, with the Green Army cheering from the stands. Football has, quite rightly, had to take a back seat in order to ensure the safety of our community.
“Our supporters have been with us every step of the way this season, and I know I speak on behalf of everyone at the club when I say that you played an integral part in our eventual success.
“We thank you for your outstanding support and look forward the occasion that we can play games with our loyal fans in the stands once again.”
With the 2019/20 season now formally concluded, the club will issue guidance on outstanding ticketing queries in the coming days and will continue to update supporters as more information becomes available on the 20/21 Sky Bet League One campaign.
Thank you for your support.
