Bob Jack was one of the great figures in Argyle’s history.   He made 105 appearances for Argyle and played in the club’s first professional game in 1903. 

Jack was appointed player-manager in 1905-06, before returning to Argyle in 1910 and managing the club for another 28 years until 1938.  He was granted a benefit match in 1922 and silver cups were awarded to each member of the winning Argyle Team.

This trophy belonged to Frank Richardson and we are delighted to have it in the Argyle Archive Collection.
