The new Chief Executive of Plymouth Argyle has told Pirate FM he wants to be a part of the club's resurgence.

Martyn Starnes has laid out his priorities for the Pilgrims, after last season's battle to save the side from administration.

He arrived from Yeovil Town after overseeing their promotion to the Championship.

Martyn said: "I love football, I love football clubs. Wherever I've been working, I give everything to that particular club and it's always sad to see one suffering the sort of demise that Plymouth had. And I hope I can be part of the resurgence.

Martyn explained explained how he envisaged his new role at the Pilgrims.

He said: "One that is going to develop the commercial side of the business, try and help John Sheridan as much as possible to provide the funding for the team and to encourage growth and development of the club throughout."
