Healthy Competition

MATCH-WINNER Luke Young has welcomed the arrival of the Pilgrims’ new signing Caolan Lavery.

The 21-year-old arrived at Home Park on loan from Sheffield Wednesday on Friday, and had a brief substitute’s role in the following day’s 2-1 victory over Dagenham & Redbridge in which Luke scored the winning goal.

Caolan has been in good scoring form for the Owls’ development team and Luke said: “That’s what everybody wants at a professional club.

“You want to have competition to fight for places; no place is guaranteed here. If you can keep everybody on their toes, everybody sharp, whoever comes in will know what their job is and everyone will support them.”

Luke and Caolan now turn their thoughts to Tuesday’s Devon Derby at Torquay.

Luke said: “We are coming off the back of a great win; [Torquay] have got beaten. They will have something to prove; we are going there with a lot of confidence.

“What a game to play in, especially for a local lad like me. All the boys are really looking forward to it.”
