Big weekend for Plymouth Argyle

IMG_1764IT’S A big weekend for Plymouth Argyle.

On Saturday, the Pilgrims will be hoping to keep their push for the League Two play-offs going when they travel to Cheltenham Town.

During the week Argyle manager John Sheridan added Everton full-back Gethin Jones and Charlton Athletic striker Zak Ansah to his squad.

Jones is unavailable for Saturday’s trip as he is away with the Wales Under-21 squad but Ansah could be in the match-day party to take on Cheltenham.

Then on Sunday, Argyle host England Under-20s’ international match against USA at Home Park (3pm).

England have not played an international fixture in Plymouth since 1989.

Included in the national squad are former Argyle youngsters Jack Stephens and Christian Walton.

Goalkeeper Walton, who plays for Brighton, is certainly looking forward to the game and playing at Home Park.

“I can’t wait,” he told the FA. “I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve only had the chance to come back to the stadium once since I left, so it will be a really special night.”

He added: “I was a season ticket holder at Plymouth for seven years.

“I used to go to all the home games and quite a few away trips as well. I’m still a fan of the club now, you never lose that.”

He continued: “Hopefully there’ll be a big turnout on the night. For England to come to that part of the country, after so long away, can only be a good thing and I’m certain the people of Plymouth will come out and get behind the boys – against what promises to be strong opposition at a very high standard.”
