How sad is that? A boyhood hero of mine.

RIP Pilgrim.

My second goalie after Dave McClaren. Like Oddball I was only watching the Fulham MOTD link early this morning. Oh for a return to that colour of green. As an impressionable 11 year old signing a player who had recently played almost 50 games for the mighty Man Utd was exciting stuff.RIP

Seem to recall Pat replaced Peter Shearing in Derek Ufton's team. My first Argyle game was vs Hull in 1966 which I am sure we won (Bickle scoring and Richie Reynolds I think!) - Pat arrived later in that season I think. A classy 'keeper and a real character, popular with the fans - played for a few seasons for us in Div 2 and 3. Lovely memories - thanks Pat.

RIP to PD. I remember him well as a fine keeper in a relegated team of 67/68, when I saw him playing away in London against the likes of Palace, Millwall and QPR, whilst I was then working in London. I could never quite get to grips with the thought of this big guy of Division One pedigree playing for Argyle and apparently being quite content to continue playing for Argyle, in the old Division 3 for a couple of seasons, when he had the ability to play at a much higher level. Thanks for the memories.

He was our goalie when I started going to Argyle.

I was only six so I didn't really know a lot about the game. It is only in later years that I have come to appreciate what a good keeper he was.

RIP Pilgrim

A sad day indeed. We have had some real nice guys play for us and Pat was high on that list. Played at a time when the maxim was "win or lose on the booze". Real character. RIP Pat.

I saw him make his debut for Argyle. Yes, he was a great shot stopper. He was a character and a bit bonkers - a la Grobbelar. Being Irish, he liked a beer as I remember.

What sad news. Like you jerry Dave McClaren was my first keeper, then John Leiper I think, then Pat. I can't find the Fulham MOTD link, can you help? RIP Pat Great memories!
