Daily Update

Former Swindon, Cardiff and Southend full-back Miguel Comminges is on trial with the Pilgrims. The Guadeloupe international, who was twice signed by former Argyle boss Paul Sturrock, has been without a club since being released by the Shrimpers at the end of last season. A left-winger may also be on the way, with Hull City wide man Will Atkinson rumoured to be heading to Home Park after tomorrow night's Carling Cup games. Atkinson has previously had successful, if brief, loan periods at Rochdale and Rotherham.

Argyle also have also added another body to the coaching staff, as former Exeter, Watford and Barnsley goalkeeper Kevin Miller is assisting Peter and Shaun Reid with training at UCP Marjon. Meanwhile, Warren Feeney has withdrawn from the Northern Ireland squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier against the Faroe Islands after picking up a slight muscle injury on Saturday afternoon.

Highlights of the Shrewsbury match are now available on the BBC Sport website. The post-Shrewsbury press interviews are nicely rounded up on Greens On Screen.

Finally, the Argyle Fans' Trust have released formal notice of the election of society board members. All the details are available on the Trust's website.
