ON THIS DAY
1956: Chris Harrison was born in Launceston. There are some people in life who never hit the headlines, never win awards; the limelight passes them by. Chris was one of them - he became an Argyle apprentice at 18, and remained at Home Park for the eleven years between the promotion seasons of the 70s and 80s. But seven managers couldn't have been wrong; he made an impressive 381 first team appearances at right-back and central defender, including heroic performances in the FA Cup run of 1984.
1987: One of the unforgettable games: Argyle 6 Leeds Utd 3. After 10 games without a win and Dave Smith up-country on a scouting mission, goals from Clayton (2), Summerfield (2), Smith and Tynan brought a shock result against the big names of Leeds (who included John Sheridan in midfield and a young Peter Swan as substitute).

2009: Marcel Seip, on loan at Blackpool, scored against his club in a 2-0 defeat at Bloomfield Road, sparking controversy over the decision to let him play.
