26-year-old Joe Riley, who had just been on the losing side with Shrewsbury in the League One play-off final, was about to get married to his fiancee Kayleigh when he found out Plymouth Argyle wanted to sign him. He told BBC Devon;

“I had a quick check of my phone and I had a text off my agent saying Plymouth are interested,”

“I said ‘go for it’.

And when asked what was better on his wedding day – his nuptials or the contract offer from Argyle – Joe Riley replied:

“It was a tough call.”

Joe Riley began his career as a youngster at Bolton Wanderers, but after Premier League starts against Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion, as well as a substitute appearance at boyhood favourites Manchester United, his progress was hampered by a succession of injuries.

A broken foot put paid to much of his second season at Bolton and he missed all of the 2013-14 campaign with knee ligament damage sustained in pre-season.

He went out on loan to Oxford United, which was followed by a free transfer move to Bury in January 2015 where the full-back rebuilt a career which has seen him play almost 150 games.
