In the good old days I could identify many grounds by the goal post stanchions, but not sure on this one.

The player could be Dave Stringer but also looks like Ken Mallender. He didn't join until 1968.

It looks like Home Park's Mayflower Stand which had standing at the front of seating much like the old City Stand at NCFC.

So I will go for Dave Stringer, Home Park, 1967/68.

Wonder why that kit was worn ? Plymouth's home shirt was mainly green,so no obvious clash.

That is why I am not convinced. Argyle's home strip then was all green with a white band and black piping. Why would we wear green shorts?

I like that kit.  The little detailing on the socks, the all white of the shirt and all green of the shorts.  Trouble is once the sponsors logo's are added now it would be trashed!  Progress hey ....

A Plymouth supporting friend says it's definitely not Home Park but thinks it may be Blackpool. 

He says the stanchions are wrong so probably related to @Capt. Pants

Alexs video clip, I think pretty much proves that it's Bloomfield Rd. Same goals etc

My sister has posted on a forum local to Plymouth. One reply says definitely not Plymouth as there were no seats there in those days.

Bloomfield Road around 1969. Looks very similar.

Found photos of the whole programme and without reading it all the 2nd page say it's Dave Stringer clearing the ball off his own line if that jogs anyones memory.

We played Blackpool away in November 1967 winning 2 nil
