ARGYLE’S 5-0 Sky Bet League 2 demolition of Morecambe was special for everyone involved with the club, but especially for Durrell Berry.The 21 year-old’s opening goal in the fifth minute was his first ever professional strike, in his 97th game for the Greens, and set the way for a third successive victory as goals from Lewi Alessandra (2), Curtis Nelson and Andres Gurrieri completed the rout.
John Sheridan was delighted that one of his many young lions opened their account for the club, although – perhaps mischievously – he did question the full-back’s finish: “I thought he mishit it!” the manager said.
“I didn’t know it was his first ever goal, but I’m very pleased for him. He’s a great lad. I’ve got a lot of time for him.”
“I think the position he plays [right wing-back] gives him a chance to get forward a bit more, and he’s very good in training at doing that.”
Berry’s goal comes at the peak of the Pilgrims’ season so far – and John believes the youngster has played a full part in the team’s sensational recent results, along with left wing-back Matt Parsons.
He said: “He made two assists against Fleetwood the other night. Him and Matty are a big part of how we play - causing problems and getting balls into the box.”
