Argyle round-up

First team held to goalless draw

It has taken 42 games for Argyle to be involved in a goalless draw in Sky Bet League One and this was an encounter that saw the biggest moment arrive inside the opening 90 seconds. 

When a downward header from skipper Joe Edwards was deemed to have been cleared before crossing the line, both sides settled in for an afternoon of faultless endeavour but little in the way of attacking penetration. 

The Pilgrims remain in fourth spot in Sky Bet League One, five points off the top two in the automatic promotion places and five points clear of seventh-placed Wycombe Wanderers, who Argyle visit on Good Friday.

Academy side win but women defeated

Plymouth Argyle Women fell to a frustrating 2-0 defeat away to Crawley Wasps this Sunday.

Having played out a seven-goal thriller against the same opponents last weekend, the reverse fixture was a much scrappier, muted affair.

Goals either side of the break from Immy Lancaster and Letitia Nicholls were enough to condemn the Greens to defeat at The New Defence ground in Horley.

Oscar Massey’s fifth Merit League One goal was enough to see Argyle’s under-18s side maintain their unbeaten record with three games left to play.

The striker scored the only goal of the the game as Darren Way’s side made it five wins from six with a 1-0 triumph away to Stevenage under-18s.

The Greens are second in the table, behind leaders AFC Bournemouth only on goal difference.

Schumacher named Manager of the Month

Argyle boss Steven Schumacher has been named the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month for March.

It was an incredible month for the Greens, who won six of their seven matches conceding just one goal.

With six consecutive wins over Morecambe, AFC Wimbledon, Bolton Wanderers, Portsmouth, Accrington Stanley and Cheltenham Town, Argyle set a new record of wins without conceding a goal.

A taste of Match Day Magic

For most people, football starts on Saturday at 3pm. But a football club is more than just the first team, and for almost 25 years Plymouth Argyle have been giving the next generation of fans a behind-the-scenes look at Home Park on match days.

To find out what the day is like, Cornwall Sports Media joined a group of excited children, and equally enthusiastic parents, from Stithians School (near Falmouth) for their Match Day Magic programme. Later, we jumped onto the pitch (with permission, of course!) to watch Luxulyan Youths round off their Train Like a Club experience with a half time mini-match.
