ISAAC Vassell has not yet played a competitive minute for John Sheridan’s Pilgrims, but that did not stop the Argyle manager offering the Cornishman a new deal.The Newquay-born winger, a cousin of former England international Darius, broke into the first-team under Carl Fletcher in 2011-12 but did not make an appearance throughout last term.
A shining light in Argyle’s second string, Vass played in every game of the Pilgrims’ run to the Devon St Luke’s Cup final, turning in an especially eye-catching performance in the final against Exeter.
John believes that the pacy winger may have what it takes but is keen for him to iron out some inconsistencies first.
Shez said: “Obviously he’s got pace and I’ve seen that when he has played.
“With him, it’s belief in himself, more than anything. He trains with us and I just think he’s a bit insecure when he’s in and around the first-team.
“But I’ve told him that he needs to grow up because I’ve seen something there.
“I think he was surprised, but I think there’s something there, some attributes that could make him a good player.”
