Argyle Keeper Positive for the Future

Wednesday July 20th will see Romain Larrieu, Plymouth Argyle's long-serving goalkeeper, begin his "Le Testimonial" season with a prestige pre-season friendly against Queens Park Rangers at Home Park (KO 1945)

Larrieu, who has been with Argyle since 2000, has become a legendary figure at the Devon club, seeing the Pilgrims through two Championships (2001-02 and 2003-04) and after six seasons in the Championship, he has remained loyal to Argyle during more tumultuous times, with the club now in administration, relegated twice in consecutive seasons and with the staff remaining unpaid for most of this year.

Romain - His time at Argyle

 



Romain Larrieu is an extraordinary player and an even more extraordinary person.

Romain - his relationship with fans

  
Romain wants to celbrate in style

Having beaten testicular cancer on two separate occasions, he remains Argyle's Number One and club captain and he undoubtedly has become the most popular player at the club, something that has been proved by the massive reaction to his recent joining of Facebook, gaining a thousand friends in less than a few days.

Romain - Cancer and his career


 
The tributes paid to him by former managers Paul Sturrock and Tony Pulis, as well as numerous former team-mates, are yet more proof of his special qualities.

Romain - the future


 
Romain recognises the important part that football plays in the local community and he will be donating proceeds from "Le Testimonial" to three local charities - The Mustard Tree MacMillan Centre, Jeremiah's Journey, and CATS (Community Action Through Sport).
