PLYMOUTH ARGYLE "homecoming" for winger Wylde

Plymouth Argyle Football Club crestYou could be forgiven for detecting a sense of unfinished business surrounding forward-thinking Gregg Wylde’s return to Plymouth Argyle.

Wylde’s last game in green was the Pilgrims 2-0 Wembley final play-off defeat by AFC Wimbledon but – via social media if nothing else – the popular 26-year-old Scottish winger has “stayed in touch” with Argyle’s promotion, new signings... and supporters.

“When I left we were a League 2 side now we’re in League 1 and yet in some ways it feels like I’ve never been away.

“The fans have been brilliant and as soon as the manager asked me if I wanted to come back the answer was an immediate yes, I didn’t have to think about it. It was a no-brainer and I am delighted to be back.

“I enjoyed my time here and wanted us to get promoted but it didn't happen, and that's just football.

“I had a tough time last year (season) and now I am really looking forward to this season.

“Things are changing, we've had success, the manager’s done well and the club are going forward...”

Wylde joined Millwall last summer and played 10 times for the Lions before joining their League 1 rivals Northampton Town.

He says: “I don’t think there’s that big a gulf between the two divisions. I started the season at Millwall and then went on loan to Northampton so I played for two clubs in the division.

“The manager has put together a good squad here and I can’t wait to get going again.”
