When a manager moves clubs, there is always speculation about who he will be bringing with him, both on and off the pitch. The latest rumour of this type is that Bury winger Danny Mayor could be set to follow his old manager Ryan Lowe from Bury to Plymouth Argyle.
The winger is out of contract this summer so would be a good move for Plymouth. Having been a key figure in Bury’s promotion season with 11 goals and 10 assists in 42 appearances in all competitions as they got promoted out of League Two, the division that Plymouth now find themselves in.
So is it a good move?
For all parties involved, we’d be inclined to say yes, for Danny Mayor he escapes all the off-field carry on that is currently drowning poor Bury Football Club. He gets a solid pay-check and a manager that already believes in him, and is very aware of just what he is capable of producing. The only negative we can see is that he could perhaps take a gamble and look for a team slightly higher up the ladder, having already proved his class in League Two, reaching double figures for goals and assists.
Is it a good move for Plymouth?
Again the answer is yes. As we mentioned, Mayor is a very good winger at League Two level, one of the best in the division. Therefore, under the right manager, that they already have, by the way, can be a game winner. As Argyle looks to bounce straight back up to League One next season, signing players like Mayor is a great way to start and show the intent that the club that wants to go places.
