Argyle Legends and Celebrities Match for Project 35
Home Park will host a spectacular afternoon of football which will see some very familiar faces once again grace the hollowed turf, along with an impressive list of celebrity names, to raise funds for Project 35.
Captain turned club ambassador Gary Sawyer leads a list of Argyle Legends confirmed for the fixture, including former strikers Jamie Mackie and Jermaine Easter, and the promotion winning trio of Hasney Aljofree, Ian Stonebridge and David Norris. They will be joined by a list of celebrities from stage and screen, including TV star Calum Best, Eastenders actor Jake Wood, F2 Freestyler Billy Wingrove, and Soccer AM and Sky TV presenter Adam Smith. Another man with an Argyle link, former manager Ian Holloway, will return to the dug-out.
