Malcolm Allison's Draft Contract

The draft contract of former Argyle manager, the late Malcolm Allison can be viewed in our online library.

It is the contract from his first tenure as manager from 6th July 1964 until 28th April 1965. It’s a fascinating insight into what an Argyle manager was paid at the time including the incentive bonuses offered. Allison also managed the club from 16th March 1978 until 6th January 1979.  In his first period Allison took Argyle on an extended run in the League Cup, reaching the semi-final in February 1965, where they were beaten by Leicester City 4-2 over 2 legs. He also introduced the iconic white “continental” kit with the new Mayflower badge. 

In his second period managing Argyle, Allison came in on March 16th 1978 and saved the club from near certain relegation to the 4th Division for the first time in it’s history.

Although we have other contracts in our collection we will not publish any relating to anyone still living. Please contact us with any concerns.
