In opposition: Plymouth Argyle - ones to watch

24 September 2021

Plymouth Argyle are certainly not a team to shy away in front of goal and seven different players have found their way onto the scoresheet for the Pilgrims on the current season.

They have amassed 17 goals across all competitions and have not been held scoreless in a League One match in what is now 630 minutes of play. It’s a run that also includes four clean sheets for the Ryan Lowe’s side.

It certainly doesn’t hurt that of the 63 goals scored from last season, Plymouth Argyle returned 50 of those goals to the line-up in this campaign. Included in the high-scoring line-up are major goal threats Luke Jephcott, Joe Edwards and Ryan Hardie.

 

Panutche Camará

Bissau-Guinean midfielder and forward Panutche Camará is approaching 50 League One appearances for the Pilgrims since arriving to Home Park in August 2020, following a free transfer from Crawley Town.

He scored his first goal for the Pilgrims in an Carabao Cup tie against Leyton Orient in September 2020. Since that time, the former Barnsley youth member has bagged six goals across all competitions, including one this season. He has also contributed an assist for the Pilgrims. From his midfield position, he leads the team with 15 tackles won, adding nine interceptions and being fouled 15 times by the opposition – making him the third-most fouled player on the squad. Camará has played a total of 869 minutes for the team, the second-most on the Pilgrims roster in that capacity.

 

Ryan Hardie

Scotland international forward Ryan Hardie made the permanent move to Plymouth Argyle in January 2021 – halfway through his second loan spell to the club from Blackpool.

Born in Stranraer, he was a childhood fan of Rangers and began his senior career with the team in 2014. He scored two goals in 13 appearances for the Scottish giants.

In his time for the Pilgrims, Hardie has scored 16 goals in all competitions, including an incredible eight in 10 matches. Hardie scored his second-ever brace in against Shrewsbury Town as part of a 3-0 win for the Pilgrims in August.

He has also provided one assist this season, while providing three interceptions and six tackles won. Hardie has served his home country of Scotland at the international level with each of the U16, U17, U19, U20 and U21 squads.

 

Luke Jephcott

Born in Aberystwyth, Welsh international Luke Jephcott is one of the mainstays of the Plymouth Argyle system, having served the club for four years in the youth system before stepping up to the first team.

He is now in his fourth senior year with the Pilgrims including a brief loan spell to Truro City (2019-20).

Jephcott was Argyle’s top-scorer for the 2020/21 season, bagging 18 goals across all competitions. On the international level, Jephcott has made nine appearances for the U19 and U21 sides for Wales. He made his U21 debut as part of a 3-0 win against Moldova.

This season, he has scored four goals and assisted on two additional goals. He is one of the most fouled players on the team with 17 drawn, while going on to deliver nine crosses into the box and pickup four interceptions.

 

Dan Scarr

No-nonsense defender Dan Scarr joined the Pilgrims in summer of 2021, having turned down an offer to extend his contract with Walsall.

He had spent just over two years with the Saddlers where he scored five goals in 85 appearances for the club. Scarr began his senior career with Causeway United (2013-14), eventually seeing action with Redditch United (2014-15), Stourbridge (2015-17) and Birmingham City (2017-19) – although he was loaned out from the latter to Wycombe Wanderers.

The defender has already found the score sheet this season with a first half goal against Sheffield Wednesday. Scarr has been one of Ryan Lowe’s ever-presents with 900 minutes on the pitch in the current campaign.  In that time, he has made 12 interceptions and won six tackles.
