LISKEARD AT HOME

Mar 31, 2016   //   by Jo Yorke   //   Articles, Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

Bude Preview WebARGYLE return to Peninsula League action with the reverse fixture against a Liskeard side we recently defeated 3-0 at Lux Park.

While the Pilgrims played some good stuff on that night, Liskeard showed more than enough promise to ensure Saturday’s meeting will be another difficult outing.

The incentive for Argyle is to gain three more points and cement second place in the Division 1 West, as that should be sufficient to ensure promotion to the Premier Division next season.

“I imagine Liskeard will come to us looking to extract a little bit of revenge from the last game,” said Head Coach Kevin Nancekivell. “They will be looking to press us all over the pitch and we expect a very tough afternoon.

“Liskeard have got some good young players in their team and we realise they can beat anybody on their day. We have to be completely focussed and 100% on our game to get the right result.

“Our aim for this season was to give our Academy and Education players regular football, and we’ve achieved that. If we can also win promotion to the Premier Division, that would be fantastic but there are a lot of games still to be played.

“We have an important Youth Alliance game against Southend as well this weekend but we will field two competitive sides for both fixtures.”

ARGYLE IN THE COMMONS

Mar 28, 2016   //   by Jo Yorke   //   Articles, Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

Sport Move and Learn at ParliamentARGYLE Community Trust were invited to the House of Commons last week for a parliamentary gathering to celebrate the national success of the + Sport Move and Learn Project. 

At the event, a number of speakers, including MPs, Ferrero UK and Ireland CEO Pieraldo Oldano, Football League Trust Operations Director Mike Evans and Hiedi Sloan from Sky Blues in the Community, spoke about the successes and major developments of the project over the past year.

The + Sport Move and Learn project is a UK programme developed by Ferrero and the Football League Trust. It is an in-school programme, which is part of Ferrero’s global initiative to encourage healthy and active lifestyles for children across the world. The active platform has already reached 15 million children, and in 2016 the programme aims to target over 32,000 children across the UK and Ireland.

Argyle Community Trust Manager Mark Lovell attended the event with our Football Development Manager Jason Chapman and Football Development Officer Stewart Walbridge.

“The event was great at bringing all the leaders together to review the successes of this valuable project,” said Mark. “It’s helpful to meet other leaders from the project to talk about the tips and achievements they have gained from the programme in order for us to apply that to our local projects.”

All speakers united in thanking all leaders of the programme, as without their support and dedication to the new project, “it would not be where it is today” and “not have the opportunity to develop” and reach hundreds more children nationally.

Argyle Community Trust delivers the six-week project to primary schools throughout Plymouth and the surrounding areas. The six-week long programme is split into three sections, meaning each young person involved has two-week blocks of football, handball and dodgeball.

Each session lasts 90 minutes, which is split into two. The first half includes all the sport activities and the second half is classroom-based, where the individuals learn about nutrition, diet and hydration, as well as each young person receiving a qualification at the end of the programme.

LISKEARD 0 ARGYLE 3

Mar 23, 2016   //   by Jo Yorke   //   Articles, Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

ARGYLE moved up to second in Division 1 West of the Peninsula League with an impressive 3-0 win over a very competent Liskeard team at Lux Park.

The home side have built a talented young squad and it was always going to be a test for the Pilgrims under the lights, but good periods of Green possession made it tough for Liskeard and leading scorer Louis Rooney opened the scoring on 28 minutes.

It remained a game very much in the balance until Rooney bagged his second just past the hour and a fine night was capped by Josh Richards scoring an absolutely belter from distance with 15 minutes left on the clock.
