ARGYLE manager John Sheridan has further boosted......his Pilgrims’ squad on transfer deadline day.
Defender Jamie Reckord has signed on a three-month loan from League 1 leaders Wolves and, like midfielder Hamza Bencherif who joined on a short-term contract earlier in the day, has completed his registration in time to be able to play in Tuesday night’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy first-round tie at Cheltenham.
Jamie, 21, is a left-back who turned professional with his home-town club in 2010 and is a product of the Molinuex Academy, having previously represented England at Under-16 and Under-17 level.
At the end of the 2010-11 campaign, Jamie was loaned out to League 2 Northampton Town, for who he made seven appearances including a losing debut on the eve of his 19th birthday against John Sheridan’s Chesterfield.
He made his Wolves debut at the start of the following campaign in a 4-0 League Cup win over his former temporary employers at Sixfields.
Another loan spell followed later in the season, when played 17 times for League 1 Scunthorpe United.
Jamie, who is contracted to Wolves until the end of the current campaign, began last season on loan to League 1 Coventry City.
He made 12 appearances for the Sky Blues, including a memorable one in the Capital One Cup at Arsenal.
He also played in the first round of this season’s Capital One Cup, when Wolves were beaten 1-0 at Argyle’s divisional rivals, Morecambe.
The terms of Jamie’s loan takes in all our games up to and including our New Year’s Day Home Park derby against Torquay United.
Jamie will wear the number 28 shirt while he is at Home Park.
