Argyle fans miss away game thanks to 'Easter chaos'

Plymouth Argyle fans spent as long as 17 hours on the road without seeing a minute of football because of traffic "chaos."

The team were away to Morecambe on Good Friday, some 330 miles away.

The match was delayed by half an hour after fans travelling to the game ground to a halt in miles of tailbacks on the M6.

But many fans still missed the game as their coaches were turned back before reaching the Globe Arena.

The club described events as "heartbreaking" and said it could easily have been prevented. They've promised a thorough review.

It made no sense to schedule a fixture which involves a 660-mile round-trip for Plymouth-based Argyle supporters – and many of our fans will have had to travel even further – for one of the busiest weekends of the year.

Plymouth Argyle have signed high goal-scorer Jamille Matt on an emergency loan from Fleetwood Town.

The 6ft1 Jamaica-born forward has had his share of ups and downs, missing the whole 2014/2015 season with a serious injury, but he has since bounced back for Fleetwood, and will be with the Pilgrims for 28 days.

Football: Win for Torquay, but Exeter City not so lucky

In tonight's football, it was honours even in the West Country derby at Huish Park, where Yeovil and Plymouth Argyle finished goal-less.
