TEENAGE striker Tyler Harvey has joined Salisbury City on a youth loan.The 18-year-old Plymothian will remain with the Conference Premier side until January 4.
Tyler has played 22 times for the Pilgrims - mainly as a substitute - since making his first-team debut a year ago against Bradford City at Valley Parade.
He scored on one of his only two starts, netting an injury-time equaliser in a 1-1 against Torquay United on Boxing Day 2012.
“It’s no good for him, at this stage, to be coming on for the last five or ten minutes,” said Argyle manager John Sheridan, who has consistently said he wants Tyler to get some regular games to help his football education.
“I’ve done it before with young players and they have always come back better players.
“I’ve spoken to Tyler and he’s willing and well up for it. Hopefully he’ll go and get games, and score one or two goals, and come back a better player for us.
“That’s the aim of letting him go out on loan. It’s for the sake of the lad getting football.”
Tyler will link up with former Argyle team-mate Warren Feeney, now assistant-manager with Salisbury, who are in eighth place in the Conference.
