Another corporate fuckboy with zero expeience or even knowledge of football running the club who has a background in property development. off field antics are his thing as they where at liverpool before anyone mentions he was there he didnt handle on field matters so again the on field side for us will be an inconvenience. Dunford stays as vice chairman a role i didnt know had in truth.


usual shite writing from os wrote:
PLYMOUTH Argyle Football Club has today [Monday, March 18, 2019] announced that Andrew Parkinson will become the club’s Chief Executive Officer at the end of the season.

Andrew, 56, the Pilgrims’ Executive Lead on Hospitality, Conferencing and Events, will succeed Michael Dunford following Argyle’s final game of the 2018-19 Sky Bet League One campaign against Scunthorpe United at Home Park on Saturday, May 4.

Michael, whose current contract comes to end in July, has served as Argyle Chief Executive in two spells – 2004-2009 and 2018-19 – and will remain at the club as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Andrew joined the Argyle off-field team in December 2018, following six years as Operations Director for Liverpool Football Club. At Liverpool, he led the development of the main Anfield stand to increase the ground’s capacity and was responsible for the overall hospitality offering and customer experience.  

Since coming to Argyle, Andrew has been driving the £6.5m investment in Home Park that will see major improvements to the Mayflower Grandstand including 5,304 new stadium seats; four fully functional and fluid hospitality spaces, with capacities from 40-440; and outstanding conferencing and events facilities.

Argyle chairman Simon Hallett said: “The Argyle Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Parkinson, who will take over from Michael Dunford on May 4, and we welcome the expertise and knowledge that he will bring to the post.

“We are extremely grateful to Michael for progressing the club and providing steady stewardship during a period of considerable transition over the last 12 months.

“We now look forward to Andrew building on the firm foundations that he has already helped put in place for an exciting future for Plymouth Argyle.”

Andrew said: “I am delighted that the Board has invited me to succeed Michael, who I have enjoyed working alongside since I arrived at Home Park and who is a passionate Argyle man.

“On and off the field, the club is in a very good position to continue to make progress, with dedicated and hard-working football and non-football staff embracing Argyle’s Vision and Values to ensure that the Green Army, the city of Plymouth and the wider Westcountry has a community club of which we can all be proud.”

Michael said: “Since Andrew’s arrival in December, I have witnessed first-hand the qualities that he will bring to the role and wish him every success during what I trust will be another exciting and successful era for Argyle.”

A corporate merry go round.  Rolling Eyes

Let's hope he shows more ambition than Dunford. I really didn't like the cut of his (Dunford's
) jib at that leg shaggers convention.

How many supporters actually want a community club? Surely the vast majority of existing fans just want to watch exciting football, and maybe the odd promotion.

I don't and I'm sure 99% of here doesn't but you got the jibbering idiots on the farm and freak chat,
That are grateful they have a club to serve them a community shit sandwich most Saturdays of the year.

It's all about the conferencing, literally all about it. It's about time the league table reflected all the effort this club is making. Tbf the table never lies.

The dim Janners have got the club they deserve.

A community Poundland ,bin raiding team on the pitch.
An unsackable deluded scot as manager and a company creaming money that should be going into the team, selling a hot fork buffet experience at a shite manked over ground of a 3rd division club,
With a 30 year repayment scheme attached to said mank over,

look how far we've come,

Not easy to get the right players down ere
third most succesful manager in Argyle's history, excellent at managing budget
stunning corporate hospitality now in place, ground improvements on track
very good deal from Simon Hallett investing in the future

Always another way of looking at it. laugh

Holloway never had any trouble getting the big names down to Plymouth, probably because they could see the ambition at the club back then. Now it's just a charity case with leg shaggers to boot.

Zackly, SEB being a good case in point, he was being courted by several big clubs but Olly persuaded him to come down for a chat and he liked the buzz that was about the club at the time, the only buzz around HP nowadays is the flies feeding on the rotting pile of dreams we once had.

Of course, things are great at Liverpool FC now because of the work Parkinson etc. put in on using his experience in retail to make sure the matchday experience was top notch

Nothing to do with a Manager who has a great rapport with the fans and a squad of exciting players who are challenging for top honours. 

People on here need to remember that the vast majority of people go to Home Park on matchdays because of the whole experience-the entertainment, the food & drink, the dining & hospitality choices etc.

Going to a football stadium to watch the match is soooo 20th Century guys

If Community Si, really was a community guy, he would invite the democratically elected AFT chairman onto the Community Club board.

You're only saying that because Andy Symons is the current chair and you like him for some strange reason? Why I don't know? Would you be saying the same if it was Bob Beale, or Ed shillibar, or Wozzer, or Chris Webb who was going to sit on the Argyle board? I somehow doubt it.

To be fair all of those mentioned are leg shagging Jimmy lovers so I would join in any opposition to them be anywhere near the trust.

Andy Symons was democratically elected by fellow fans as were the previous ones good or bad, better to have someone with a mandate than a bumlicky self promoter type.
I dont know Andy at all but looking at some of the top weapons who conduct their hate campaign against him , i'd say he's doing something right.

Good to see an experienced man appointed as CEO, time to move the club forward now and get the ice stadium built and it will be exciting to see the new menus on offer in the conference facility.
