Plymouth Boss Fletcher Won’t Apologise For Giving Youth A Chance

Plymouth Argyle caretaker boss Carl Fletcher has defended his decision not to play for the club in Tuesday night’s 5-1 loss at Oxford Utd.

The former Wales international instead opted to give youth a chance by picking teenagers Luke Young and Jamie Griffiths ahead of himself at the Kassam Stadium.

Young and Griffiths are both graduates of the Club’s Apprenticeship programme.

“One individual doesn’t make a team,” the 31-year-old, who has not played since taking over as boss, told BBC Radio Devon.

“For the future of the club there’s no harm in the young lads playing.”

Teenagers Young and Jamie Griffiths, 19, started in midfield alongside captain Simon Walton, while Fletcher remained an unused substitute.

He added: “In terms of the outcome I don’t think it would have made a difference at all.

“You’ve got to think about things as a whole, not just as an individual.”
