A great start for Carrick in L2 but also interesting to see other teams' starts in the division!
Great start to the season, can they maintain this form though?
JohnWarrington Thank you

ScottT Hopefully he can do it in real life, he sucks at the moment

TheLFCFan Same here I wish the cup went diffidently

Jack Glad you like the full table, going to keep that in my updates

Griffo Probably not hahaha Southern Section Group H Match Day 1 Review

5 September 2019

For Group H it was a very exciting start to the group stage. We were treated to a 5-0 victory that had a hat trick and another match that ended in penalties. Here is a recap of the days action.

Cambridge United 5-0 Forest Green

First for the match between the two League Two sides of Cambridge and Forest Green. For the visiting U's it was a day of domination scoring five goals at the Abby Stadium.

For Cambridge striker Andy Dallas it was a day of joy. The former Rangers product scored a hat trick that against a struggling opponent. Other goals came from Harvey Knibbs and Louis John.

Plymouth Argyle 1-1 Southampton U-23's

The second match of the day saw Premier League 2 Division One side Southampton travel west to Plymouth of League 2.

The Pilgrims battled through to a well deserved 4-3 victory in penalties.

After late goals from Will Aimson of Plymouth (62') and Callum Slattery of Southampton (65') the two sides had to finish the day in penalties.

After scoring the first two goals of the shoot out and after a miss Plymouth would finish the day off by three straight penalties to gain two points in the table.

    Matchday 2
  • Can you explain how the table works? I am confused
    Mickey Mouse competition, but well done anyway
    A great result against a young Southampton side that has proven to have a great production line. Superb result for you!
    Griffo Same here, just want to win thats all i know

    ScottT Just want the money haha

    Jack Should be an easy rest of the GS

    Parker to Plymouth

    Young Defender Finds New Home at Home Park

    16 September 2019

    ARGYLE deep into the September portion of the League Two season have signed the 20 year old defender from free agency.

    Mich'el, 20, joined up with the Pilgrims a few days prior while the club was away at Port Vale. Currently he has been working with the U-23 squad to get to know the system and train with his new teammates.

    Before becoming a free agent last season he was apart of the Millwall's youth set up. Before joining Millwall he was a member of Liverpool from 2014-2018. He has not had any experience in first team football but has had a decent start in the youth leagues.

    Parker will be formally introduced to Home Park during half-time of the match against Cheltenham Town on the 21st as he is not expected to be part of Michael Carrick's squad that day. His debut with Argyle should be for the U-23's in a friendly against Halesowen Town Under 23s on the 18th.

    Parker is said to be excited to join Plymouth as he had rejected two other offers to become a Pilgrim. His contact will run until the end of the season.

    Welcome to Home Park, Mich'el.
    Welcome to the club. Looking forward to seeing what role he plays in the team going forward.
    ScottT Did pretty decent on his debut due to some injuries. Going to be good for the future and sent him on a leadership course

    As the season progresses into the second month, it is normal to see some stagnation as fixture congestion starts to get to the players. Despite this issue Argyle was able to get 8 out of 15 points in league play. The worst came in the final matchday of the month losing to Mansfield Town 3-2 away from home.

    The biggest surprise was that striker Dominic Telford was goalless for the first time since joining the team. In the six matches he failed to produce a goal. This may have been the one reason the club was not at the same high performance as in September.

    In the EFL Trophy the club was able to get two points in the shootout win against the Southampton U-23 Squad. Next up we will be facing Cambridge on 8 October at Home Park.

    Up next for the Green and White Army will be six matches in October. In League Two the club will travel to Swindon and Exeter while hosting Scunthrope, Carlisle and Leyton Orient. It will be an exciting month to see if the club can sustain staying in the promotion range.

    The big match will be on 27 October traveling to fellow Devon side Exeter in the West Country Derby. The last time the two sides hooked up was back in 2017. Plymouth won in penalties during the 2017-18 League Trophy Group Stage.

    Player of the Month


    Upcoming Matches for October 2019

    An average month, but enough to keep you within the automatic promotion places. A tough couple of games either side of the Trophy clash and of course the derby with Exeter to end the month.
    Still in a good position here, promotion is well on the cards
    ScottT Excited for that Exeter match!!!!!

    Griffo So far so good. Got enough to rotate so we are fresh
