John Uzzell's Testimonial

Tuesday, November 25, 1986

Throughout his 12 years at Home Park, John Uzzell ("Uuuuuzzell") was rarely a first team regular, but he still made nearly 300 appearances for the club. A local lad, he joined Argyle as an apprentice and graduated though the youth team and reserves to his first team debut in August 1977. What he lacked in finesse, he more than made up in honesty, hard work and loyalty; probably why many an Argyle fan has a soft spot for Uuuuuzzell, and why Brian Clough was so pleased to offer his side for John's big night..
