Pilgrim Progress For Paul
... wasn't it fun when the Mackems were asked to turn up in green to salute new boss Nial Quinn, and Plymouth (who play in green) must have thought 20,000 Argyle fans had followed them the 450 miles from the south coast.
As a reward for stuffing the Mackems in their own back yard ... Glenn Roeder has given them highly-rated defender Paul Huntington, 18, on trial with a view to a possible loan move. The England youth international will spend this week at Home Park and the Pilgrims will decide if they want him.
The Carlisle-born defender was a trainee at Newcastle before signing a three-year professional contract last summer.
