Salford City bring in experienced Plymouth Argyle man – a good move?

Salford City has confirmed the signing of former Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Kyle Letheren, on a one-year deal after he left the Pilgrims following the expiration of his contract.

The 31-year-old ‘keeper started his career at Swansea City, following a number of loans and a couple of spells in Scotland, Letheren signed for Plymouth in 2017.

He made just 23 appearances for the club and is looking forward to a new challenge.

Letheren said: I’m delighted to be here and I can’t wait for the season to get started. The club is on an upward spiral-like everybody knows, and I think Salford’s on everyone’s lips at the moment.”

It seems the ambition of the club and manager, swayed his decision in linking up at The Peninsula Stadium. The Welshman added:

“I think this year, obviously you’ve gained three of four promotions back-to-back and that can be a deadly thing at times because you have got momentum.

I’ve spoken to the gaffer and that’s what he wants this season as well, he doesn’t want to change that, so I think we’ve got to aim for play-offs minimum and hopefully we can get this club into League One because if it does I think it’ll just take off again to be honest.”

The Ammies are certainly on the rise. Players are clearly impressed by the clubs ambition and are interested in joining the thriving side. Letheren has significant experience, which will benefit Salford both on and off the pitch. Graham Alexander will be looking to add further quality and experience to his side before their season starts on August 3rd on Sky Sports vs Stevenage.
