James Brent expects 'constructive challenge' by fans' board
JAMES BRENT expects the newly-elected Plymouth Argyle Supporters Board (PASB) to be a voice to raise 'matters of concern' among the Green Army.
The PASB had their first meeting with the club's directors on Friday night, before the Pilgrims' home game against Gillingham the following afternoon.
The two groups will get together every three months, although a representative of the PASB will liaise with Argyle's acting chief executive Martin Baker on a more regular basis.
Brent, Argyle's owner and chairman, told Herald Sport: "I think the first meeting with the PASB went very well.

"We discussed the way we will conduct future meetings and the relationship between the PASB and Plymouth Argyle Football Club's statutory board."
The role of the PASB is to provide 'constructive challenge' to the directors, as well as having an oversight of the running of the club and their finances.
Brent said: "We will meet quarterly with the PASB, but if there are urgent matters the proposal is that they will appoint a representative and he or she will liaise with the chief executive in between."
The Argyle owner wants the PASB to set the agenda for the quarterly talks between them and the club's directors.
Brent said: "We will have our statutory board meeting and after that we will sit down with the PASB.
"Clearly there are standard items on the agenda, such as previous minutes and apologies for absence, and so on, but the core of it will be set by the PASB.
"If I was to set it, the argument would be that I would set it to my convenience rather than to others.
"What I'm assuming is the PASB will meet in between our meetings and bring to the fore matters of concern to fans that will then form the core of the agenda to debate with us."
