PreSeason: Yeovil

Yeovil Town 5 - 0 Plymouth Argyle

Not the best start to the preseason or indication for the league ahead with a 5-0 loss to local rivals, Yeovil; including a red card for Chadwick.  And to come unstuck against ex-players too.  Still, it is only a 'friendly' warm up.  Like Team GB's match verses Brazil.  Maybe.

Save the last Walts for me

The skipper has abandoned the ship.  Former Argyle captain Simon Walton has left the club to join Hartlepool United next season due to family issues.  Walton made 66 appearances for the Greens in 4 seasons and was the highest goal scorer last season whilst also acting as captain.  His move up north will allow him to spend more time with his family in Leeds, and leaves behind a disappointed Carl Fletcher who paid tribute to the work he did in ensuring the club's league status last season.

'Allo 'Allo

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Rene!

With the departure of Le Keeper, Argyle have been on the look out for a new man between the sticks, and that guy has turned out to be Rene Gilmartin, a 25 year old former under 21 Irish keeper.  Gilmartin has joined on a 2 year deal having been released by his former club, Watford, most of which was spent on loan.  Rene started his career at Walsall in 2005 where he made 35 appearances.  Oh and he's Irish really, not French - you stupid woman!
