Please see below the Statement of the Staff released just now. It goes without saying that everyone who has Argyle in their hearts will echo every word.
We believe that Friday’s board meeting is probably the most important in the Plymouth Argyle’s 124-year history.
We believe that tough decisions need to be made at the meeting to secure its future.
We would therefore urge all directors to put aside any personal interests when it comes to making those decisions, and act only in the best interests of the Plymouth Argyle Football Club.
We call for the board to reach a clear, concise, united, and workable solution which will secure the club’s future.
We appreciate that the consequences of such may not be palatable for individual shareholders, as, indeed, it might not be for individual members of staff.
However, what is paramount is the survival and future of Plymouth Argyle.
We remain disappointed that various board members have continued to send out unclear and unhelpful mixed messages about the best way forward for the club.
We are currently working without pay – and with no indication of when we will next be paid – because we want the club to survive.
We are proud to work for Plymouth Argyle Football Club, a club at the heart of a huge Westcountry community.
While many are hoping and praying for its future, only six men can directly influence that future.
To let it die would be indefensible.
