A step in the Right Direction

Civil Service ClubSo news that got buried during yesterday's announcement and subsequent reaction about the Mayflower terrace, is that Argyle are looking into improving their training facilities.

As reported in The Herald, the Plymouth Area Civil Service Sports Association Club is currently up for sale. Boasting a vast range of facilities for including social club, function suite, fitness centre, sauna, badminton, basketball, indoor and outdoor Bowls, cricket, darts, 5-a-side football, netball, pool, rounders, rugby, skittles, snooker, 11-a-side football, table tennis and tennis courts, the club is been forced to close this coming September. There have been 20 applicants to buy out the facilities, one of whom is Argyle.

It has been a bugbear of the club that Harper's Park is becoming inadequate for a Championship Club, and the change in location, as well as the potential for something along the lines of a new branch to PAFC ltd (Argyle Leisure maybe), coupled with Home Park's new concert venue status, could bring in new revenue streams. However with the recent collapse in activity on Phase 2, the added burden of the closed terracing, the lack of finance to support the team; could/would anything come of this?
