This classic design by Pilgrim leisure lasted 3 seasons from 1983/84 – 1986/87 and saw an FA Cup Semi Final and promotion to the second tier each with a different shirt sponsor. This one from 1986/87 was worn by Leigh Cooper and John Uzzell as Argyle fell just short of the inaugural season of the play offs.
John “Cardiff” Williams was a popular member of the Third Division title winning squad of 1958 – 59 making made 24 appearances that year. A hugely popular member of the squad, John was retained for a further two years to help bring reserve team players through.
John sadly passed away in October 2022, and we are very grateful to his family for donating his blazer, tie and medal to the Argyle Archive. Our thanks also go to Archive Sponsors PASOTI for helping to arrange this donation
