Plymouth Argyle chief James Brent tries new stand technology
THE NATIONWIDE campaign for supporters to be allowed to stand at all-seater stadium came to Home Park on Saturday.
The Safe Standing Roadshow took place outside the main gates at Home Park before the game against Gillingham.
Argyle owner and chairman James Brent was among many people, including city MPs Oliver Colville and Alison Seabeck, plus local councillors and fans, to try out a section of rail seating.
The Football Supporters' Federation are pushing for legislation to be changed to allow rail seats, which are increasingly used in Germany, to be introduced in this country.
