1937: George Silk made his Argyle debut in a 4-0 defeat at Coventry. George was one the few to have played for Argyle before and after the Second World War, also appearing in most of the Pilgrims' limited wartime programme. He was a tough tackling fullback - by modern standards, downright reckless - whose only concern was to get the ball and boot it up field, and the fans loved him. He was the last survivor of Argyle's pre-war staff when he left in 1952 to become player-manager at Newquay. He died in 1969, aged just 53.

1979: Two and a half years after signing as an apprentice, 20-year-old Gary Megson left Home Park for Everton for a record £250,000 fee.
