Argyle get their golden share back

Plymouth Argyle have made a full return to the Football League with the return of their ‘golden share’ by the League.  While praising the efforts of James Brent to save the club, and also the contribution made by Plymouth City Council, the League authorities made it clear that the takeover represented ‘a leap of faith’ by the new board.    They would be closely scrutinising the club’s finances in the years to come.

The chairman of Plymouth Argyle Fans Trust, Chris Webb, has stepped down.  ‘Many deserve credit for saving the club but the club owes no more to any single person than it does to Chris,’ said James Brent.


‘Our proud club has been damaged badly and the efforts to bring her back to her deserved position will be considerable.  I hope Chris will continue to play a leadership role in the club,’ Brent added.


But Webb, who has a full-time trade union post. says for the time being he does not want to become involved in the day-to-day running of Argyle.
