Former Argyle forward Jason Banton has signed for League Two rivals Wycombe Wanderers.

The 22-year old, who can play as a striker or wideman, was released by the Greens at the end of last season and has signed a one-year contract with Wycombe.

Banton initially joined Argyle on-loan from Crystal Palace in January 2013 and was instrumental in John Sheridan’s team escaping relegation; his six goals in 14 games made him a hero with the Argyle fans.

He returned to Home Park in January 2014 on an 18-month contract but his second stay wasn’t so successful. Banton suffered through injury, loss of form and non-selection and his first-team appearances were limited.
He did make two second half appearances against Wycombe in both play-off semi-final games, scoring in the first leg and playing well in the second leg when many fans thought he should have started the game.

Banton’s departure from Argyle after the play-off games appeared to be about wanting to find a club closer to London rather than Argyle not wanting him.

Good luck Jason and thanks!

Another former Pilgrim has also found a new home. Performance Manager John Harbin has taken up a similar role at League One club Port Vale.
