James Brent makes apology to Plymouth Argyle fans
OWNER and chairman James Brent has issued an apology to the Green Army for Argyle's poor results this season.
The Pilgrims narrowly avoided relegation from the Football League last term and Brent had high hopes for better fortunes this time around.
But Argyle are languishing in a lowly 23rd position in the table after a 4-0 defeat away to Port Vale on Saturday.
New manager John Sheridan will take charge of the team for the first time when the Pilgrims play Morecambe at Home Park on Saturday having been officially unveiled at a press conference today.

Brent, speaking to the media today, said: "I would like to offer sincere apologies to our fans for the very troubled first half of the season we have had.
"We had genuine expectation we would be sited in a different part of the table than we are at the moment."
Meanwhile, former Argyle loan signing Alex MacDonald scored two of the goals for Burnley's development squad when they beat Everton under-21s 4-1 today.
MacDonald had been set for a permanent move to Home Park until the sacking of manager Carl Fletcher on January 1.
According to Burnley's official website, MacDonald put in 'an outstanding performance' and 'was the catalyst for many of the Clarets' brightest attacking moments' against Everton.
