Argyle have the opportunity to make history on Tuesday night, with the Greens just one positive result away from qualifying for the knock-out stages of the Papa Johns Trophy for the first time since the competition switched to a group stage opening round in 2016.

A draw or better with Crystal Palace under-21s on Tuesday night will be enough to secure safe passage from Group M, which Argyle currently top with five points after two games.

Backing Steven Schumacher’s side on Tuesday night is the Kaya Gallery based on the Barbican in Plymouth, with the family-run local business sponsoring the shirt sleeve for the fixture.

Chris Warne, an Argyle fan and owner of Kaya Gallery, said: “I am really pleased to see our logo on the sleeves of Argyle’s shirt for this game. I watched my first match from the terraces of the Mayflower Grandstand in August 1970, and so to come full circle and have the opportunity to support the team for this game is fantastic.”

Kaya Gallery hosts renowned works from the likes of Brian Pollard, Beryl Cook and Robert Lenkiewicz, combined with other offerings from regional artists and contemporary photographers.

Kaya is the third different organisation to secure Papa Johns Trophy shirt sleeve sponsorship this season, following closely after Redball Ventures and Aircraft Transport Services, and the company was drawn to the Papa Johns Trophy shirt sleeve sponsorship due to its association with providing first-team opportunities for emerging Academy talent.

Tom Martin, the club’s Commercial Sales Manager, feels the Papa Johns Trophy sponsorships for this season underline the growth of interest in working with table-topping Argyle.

He said: “It is really exciting to see the shirts printed with another local, family-run business doing great work in the city.

“We have been inundated with contact from local organisations keen to secure sponsorship and partnership opportunities this season. I think it speaks to the strength of Argyle right now, not just on the field, but also off field, where the club’s community work and Project 35 activities have galvanised the community.

“As a commercial department, we’re feeling the benefit from the really positive sentiment around Argyle at the moment, and it’s really uplifting to get to work with more Plymouth success stories like Kaya Gallery.”
