Argyle manager John Sheridan has so far managed to secure eight new signings this summer with defender Kelvin Mellor the sixth of the new players to arrive at Home Park.
The former Crewe player signed a two-year contract.
Let's have a look at the career of the 23-year old right-back.
Mellor was spotted at non-league side Nantwich Town by Crewe manager Dario Gradi in 2008 and quickly moved to Gresty Road.
To aid his development Mellor was loaned out to Stafford Rangers and Newcastle Town and finally made his Crewe debut in November 2010.
Further loan spells followed at Leek Town and Icelandic side ÍBV Vestmannaeyjar and it was during the 2011-2012 season that Mellor cemented a regular place in the Crewe team.
That season ended with Crewe promoted to League One following a play-off final win against Cheltenham at Wembley.
Championship side Derby County offered the right-back a three-year contract but Mellor chose to stay at Gresty Road and play for Crewe in League One.
The season ended with Crewe and Mellor back at Wembley in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Southend which ended in a 2-0 win.
Mellor wasn't a regular starter in the Crewe side in League One last season but still managed to play in 32 games and at the end of that campaign he was released.
With Sheridan in the market for a right-back Mellor travelled down the A38 to sign a two-year contract.
Mellor is yet another new signing who has played in a higher league and tasted promotion from League Two.
The 23-year old is taller than an average right-back at six-feet two-inches and should be a threat at set-pieces although his main attribute is his pace and can also slot in at centre-back when needed.
Welcome to Home Park.
