AboutPlymouth Argyle FC

Plymouth Argyle are an English professional football club, based in Plymouth, Devon that play in Football League Two.

Since turning professional in 1903, the club has won five Football League titles (one Division Two and two Division Three), five Southern League titles and one Western League title. The 2009–10 season was the club’s 42nd in the second tier of English football. The team set the record for most championships won in the third tier, having finished first in the Third Division South twice, the Third Division once and the Second Division once.

The club takes its nickname, “The Pilgrims”, from an English religious group that left Plymouth for the New World in 1620. The club crest features the Mayflower, the ship that carried the pilgrims to Massachusetts. The city of Plymouth is the largest in England never to have hosted top-flight football. They are the most southern and western League club in England.

In the 2015/16 season, Argyle finished 5th, securing a play-off game against Portsmouth. Argyle just missed out on promotion, losing the play-off final at Wembley. Plymouth will compete in League Two for the 2016/17 season.
