Following Plymouth Argyle’s exciting 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, Friary Mill Bakery is creating a giant traditional pasty to welcome the team back to the city with their favourite Plymothian treat.
The bakery will present the team with the baked delight, which will be made at its Cattedown production site, on Friday lunchtime.
It is unclear as to whether this is related to the Ginsters sponsorship deal that Plymouth Argyle holds – the pasty logo is emblazoned on the front of their green shirts – or perhaps the team are just fond of a pasty.
There is speculation in the British Baker office as to whether this will create a competitive pasty-off… which we think would be a ca-past-rophe.
The team is currently training for the FA Cup replay at home next Wednesday, and the giant pasty, which will have the unique element of a Green Army edible badge across the top, will be delivered to the club’s home ground, Home Park.
A Friary Mill pasty won local newspaper Plymouth Herald’s Pasty of the Year 2016 accolade.
Friary Mill has said that, as a local bakery and with many customers being Plymouth Argyle fans, it “can't think of a better way to show support than with a giant Green Army pasty”.
Last weekend Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce was presented with a tray of pasties as a welcome present when he returned to his former club, Bolton Wanderers.
