TYLER Harvey is intent on using Argyle’s 2015-16 season as a platform to show his full potential to the Green Army.
The upcoming campaign for the Greens feels like something of a fresh start for 20 year-old, who signed a new one-year contract during the summer break to continue playing for the club he supported as a child.
“I was delighted,” said Tyler. “This is my home, so I’m over the moon. It was never really in doubt.
“I’ve grown up watching the club, so it’s nice as well as strange to be in the dressing room, especially with players that you watched growing up.”
With another year of experience under his belt, as well as a new manager in Derek Adams and five new summer signings to work with, Harvey feels that the stage is set for him to have his most successful season to date.
“This season, I’m going to look to show everyone what I can do,” said Harvey.
“I don’t think I’ve been given enough of a run to show what I’m capable, and hopefully I can do well enough for myself to show everyone what I can do. But it’s down to me to impress the manager and stake a claim to get in the side.
When asked of his opinion of Adams, Tyler said: “He’s different to managers I’ve had before. He’s very positive, and we use the ball a lot in training. Hopefully we’re successful under him.”
Ahead of Argyle’s opening pre-season friendly against Elburton Villa, the forward certainly feels that things are currently heading the right direction for both himself and team, and is looking forward to kicking a ball in anger for the first time in two months.
“It’s been a good week – a tough week, but really good,” said Harvey. “There’s been a very good balance of running and ball work.
“There’s a big, positive vibe around the club right now, so if we carry that on into the new season we should be alright. It’s a big year for me; it's a big year for everyone at the club.
“At my age you want to improve at everything. There’s no part of my game that I think is complete, so I can improve on everything at the minute.
“I think every game is important during pre-season, for a lot of different reasons, but at the moment it’s a good time to impress. [Elburton] is the first bit of competitive football we’ve had in a while, so everyone will be looking to impress on Tuesday. Everyone is looking forward to having a run-out.”
