Plymouth Argyle FC is a football club based in the city of Plymouth, in Devon, England. They have played in League Two, the fourth tier of the English football league system, since the 2011–12 season. They are one of two teams in Devon currently competing in the Football League, the other being Exeter City – Argyle’s local rivals.
Since becoming professional in 1903, the club has won five Football League titles (one Division Two and two Division Three), five Southern League titles and one Western League title. The 2009–10 season was the club’s 42nd in the second tier of English football. The team set the record for most championships won in the third tier, having finished first in the Third Division South twice, the Third Division once and the Second Division once.
Plymouth are currently maintaining their League Two automatic promotion push, with a recent win over Morecambe. Plymouth Argyle need one less point to gain promotion after Luton Town could only draw at relegation-threatened Newport County this week.
The club takes its nickname, “The Pilgrims”, from an English religious group that left Plymouth for the New World in 1620. The club crest features the Mayflower, the ship that carried the pilgrims to Massachusetts.
The club have predominantly played in dark green and white throughout their history, with a few exceptions in the late 1960s and early 1970s when white was the colour of choice. The city of Plymouth is the largest in England never to have hosted top-flight football. They are the most southerly and westerly League club in England.
