Plymouth Argyle Renew Partnership with University Marjon

July 24, 2013

Plymouth Argyle Football Club have renewed their partnership with the University of St Mark and St John, allowing the club to make use of the university’s facilities.

The League Two club will have access to the gym, grass pitches, the sports therapy centre and the sports science lab at the Plymouth campus during the 2013-14 season.

Stan Cinnamond, director of sport at the university said: “As the centre for sporting excellence, we are delighted to renew this partnership.

“The new foundation degree in Football Coaching and Development cements our strengthened collaboration with the football club and really puts us on the map for providing state of the art facilities and support to students and sports teams in the city.

“We will also continue to work with Plymouth Albion Rugby Football Club and have plans to broaden our relationships with professional teams across the county and throughout the UK.”

Argyle CEO Martyn Starnes said he was ‘delighted’ the Pilgrims had struck a new deal with the university, adding their relationship was going from ‘strength to strength.’

“To be able to make use of the superb facilities at Marjon is of huge importance to our preparations,” said Starnes.

“The relationship between the city’s leading sports club and the university, with its top-class sporting amenities, is vitally important to both parties and for the city.”
