Jimmy Spencer has now been signed by Mansfield Town of League 2.

According to the Argyle statement (see Johnny-Glen's blog above), Sonny Bradley has taken up the option to extend his contract for another season. I agree that Graham Carey will be difficult for us to hold on to.

I would be hoping that argyle sign more than one forward to progress in league 1 and I personally think that it's going to be very difficult for us to keep Graham Carey and Sonny Bradley .

I take your point about Ryan Brunt, Jamie - Argyle have had bad experiences recently of players suffering cruciate knee injuries not recovering sufficiently to play at this level again - so the decision to release him is not surprising. My main surprise is at the decision to release Vincent Dorel but keep Mark McCallum - I thought that Dorel was by far the better of the two. However, it is possible that Dorel made it clear he would only stay if he was guaranteed more first team football. It is a huge plus factor that Sonny Bradley has decided to stay; let us hope that Graham Carey is like-minded! Jordan Slew's release will disappoint his large fan club but Derek Adams has to make space for bringing in stronger players. The names of the other players released does not surprise me. Spencer may count himself unlucky but we already have two strong strikers and I expect that Derek might be looking at bringing in at least one forward with successful League One experience.

I'm surprised at the decision to release Connor Smith, as I thought he did pretty well and played 21 games this season. Other than that, if the three players offered contracts are signed up, I'll be pretty happy with that as a starting point, although it does look as though we'll lose at least Carey, and there will be a significant number of new arrivals. That said, if they are of the same standard as those brought in in January, we'll have a decent team to start the season. I'm not optimistic that the talk of back-to-back promotions is well founded, but I'll bec surprised if we are not in the middle third of League 1 at the end of the season (9th to 16th). If it's the top end of that range, I would say that the foundations for a promotion push the season after would have been laid. Anything less than 16th and we will have a longer wait.
