Plummer Provides Ray of Hope at Arena

Darlington defender Matt Plummer has a bright future ahead of him at the Arena, according to Manager Colin Todd.

The former Hull City Apprentice and graduate of the ASE programme has been ever-present since joining the Quakers from Hull City during the summer and Todd believes the centre-back can develop even further.

“Plummer has a lot going for him,” Todd told BBC Tees, of the defender who made five appearances for Hull before his release in May 2009.

“The kid is learning all the time, and I think we’ve got a player there.”

The Quakers gained their first point in the 1-1 draw with Cheltenham on Saturday, and Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat of Lincoln City at the Arena was the Club’s first win of the new campaign, albeit in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

And Todd admitted that he is delighted with the response of his players, and can see that progress is being made, however slowly.

“The boys are gaining a lot of confidence. The goal on Saturday has given us a boost, and we’ve gone into Tuesday’s game with a lot of confidence and belief. We’re gradually turning the screw and we’ll have to keep doing that.”
