New Bolton Wanderers defender Will Aimson has been backed to succeed at the club by someone who watched every step of his time at Plymouth Arygle.
The 27-year-old arrived this month as a free agent, and Wanderers' fifth signing of the summer, following his release from the League One club.
Aimson - formerly of Bury and Blackpool - turned out 46 times for Plymouth last season but was let go by Ryan Lowe this month.
The versatile defender joins fellow new recruits Oladapo Afolayan, Declan John, George Johnston and Josh Sheehan at Bolton and manager Ian Evatt was pleased to add someone with his speed, mobility and promotion-experience.
Argyle expert and reporter Chris Errington has now given us his thoughts on Aimson's move to the UniBol, as well as the feeling from Plymouth's end.
He told the Manchester Evening News : 'There was surprise from some Argyle supporters when Will Aimson was released by Ryan Lowe at the end of last season, given that he had played regularly throughout the 2020/21 League One campaign.
'The Pilgrims' boss admitted it had been a tough decision to make but, ultimately, he wanted to completely overhaul a defence that had conceded 80 goals in 46 games
'Aimson was the most consistent of Argyle's defenders in Lowe's favoured 3-1-4-2 formation, and when the manager switched to a flat back four late in the season - in an attempt to limit the goals that were being conceded - it seemed to suit him better to play as the right-sided centre-back.
'He is a strong, determined defender who should score more goals from attacking set pieces given his aerial power.
'Back in the north-west, where he previously played for Blackpool and Bury, I think Aimson will be a good addition to the promoted Bolton squad.'
