Ollie Good Show

ARGYLE defender Peter Hartley thinks new Argyle signing Ollie Norburn is capable of improving the confidence of every player around him.

Norburn has signed a one-year deal with the Greens, after impressing manager John Sheridan in his side’s first two pre-season friendlies.

After being named in the starting line-up for the 0-0 draw against Torquay – alongside Norburn – Hartley revealed that the midfielder’s qualities have shone in training, and it’s positively effecting the entire squad.

“Ollie is technically a very good player,” said Peter. “You could see that from the moment he stepped on the training field.

“He likes to handle the ball, and he is more than capable of taking the ball under pressure. It brings the confidence out in the rest of the team, and helps us believe in playing the way we want to play.

“It is great to have Ollie on board. He is a cracking lad as well as a good player, and only 21, so I think there will be a lot more to come from him.”
