‘Special’ – Exclusive: David Norris reflects on Plymouth Argyle memories

Plenty of Plymouth supporters will hold the 2003/04 season fondly in their memories, as it was the league campaign where they were crowned Football League Second Division winners. 

They were made to work hard for it, but eventually held out to win promotion after an impressive season under Paul Sturrock’s guidance.

Speaking exclusively to Football League World’s Chief Editor Sam Rourke, former Plymouth midfielder David Norris revealed that the league title win was his best memory with the club.

“When we won the league. We were in a duel with QPR almost the whole season, and it happened to be the second to last game against them. 

“We needed a point to win it, but we went on and won it. Winning that game and winning promotion into the Championship was a standout feeling as I hadn’t been promoted before in my career.”

Norris made 243 appearances in total for the Pilgrims, and established himself as a regular in the Plymouth team for a number of seasons.

The 38-year-old labelled the promotion as ‘special’ and will be hoping that his former side can win promotion back into League One at the first time of asking this season.

“Getting promoted and what comes with it is what was special. The open top bus tour, and playing in front of big crowds.

“I was there for a long time and also won Player of the Year which was really nice, but winning the league was special.”

Arygle are next in action against Walsall on Saturday, where they’ll be looking to go top of the League Two table with a positive result.
