‘What more could a fan want?’ – Many Plymouth fans react to 35-y/o’s recent announcement

Published

Former Manchester United midfielder David Fox has announced he’s leaving Plymouth Argyle after three years with the club.

Fox, who started out at Old Trafford before a long and nomadic career, has made 128 appearances for the Pilgrims, helping them to promotion in 2017.

He’s also turned out for the likes of Blackpool, Norwich and Colchester during his time as a professional.

The 35-year-old put out an emotional tweet in which he said goodbye to Home Park, thanking the fans, the boss and a host of the backroom staff. It seems the motivation for his departure is his separation from his young family, which is as good a reason as any.

Fox earned England honours up to Under 20 level and was briefly part of the Blackpool fairytale, helping them to the League One play-offs in their rise to the Premier League. Whilst he isn’t retiring, his future is now uncertain as he departs Ryan Lowe’s side.

It’s a transitional time for the Green Army, they’ve recently been relegated to League Two and will be looking to rebuild under a new manager.

Whilst change is widely accepted, these Plymouth fans are certainly sad to see the back of Fox, evidently a popular figure on the terraces of Home Park.
