Fletcher hoping to bring in new players

Plymouth Argyle boss Carl Fletcher has warned potential new signings that they will have to work hard in his team.

Fletcher got the manager's job on Tuesday after more than a month as caretaker boss at Home Park.

And the 31-year-old was keen to ward off players who felt they could take advantage of Argyle's situation.

He told BBC South West: "We don't want players, if we are going to make any additions, just to come and go through the motions and pick up a few quid."

He continued: "We want people that are here to prove something, that are hungry, that want to do well, because we've got those players in the changing room now.

"If we are going to make any additions they've got to be the right people."

Argyle can bring new faces in after the Football League approved James Brent's takeover of the club.

Fletcher's starting line-up in the 2-1 defeat at Cheltenham on Saturday featured seven players who were under 21 years old.

The club are recovering after finally exiting administration over the weekend following their takeover.

"It's not just about a name or a certain size or certain attribute, it's got to be the all-round package," Fletcher said.

"Bringing the right person into that group is vital because if you get that wrong it can very tough to get that out of your changing room.

"You don't want different factions in there, you want everyone to be together and at this minute in time we've got that."
