At the Ready

THE success enjoyed by Scottish Premiership players under the tutelage of Derek Adams was a key reason for defender Aaron Taylor-Sinclair joining the Pilgrims.

The Aberdonian full-back is looking forward to working with the Argyle manager after seeing the likes of Graham Carey, Jake Jervis and Greg Wylde prosper by coming to Home Park from the Scottish leagues.

“It’s one of the factors why I chose to come here,” said Aaron, who spent the last two seasons at Doncaster Rovers. “The manager has taken players from Scotland and improved them, and they are well-known names down here now.

“As soon as I got the call from the manager that he wanted me down here, I just jumped at the chance. I’m delighted to be here.”

Aaron began his career north of the border, before moving to England to join Wigan Athletic, where a change of manager limited his first-team opportunities.

He said: “I started at Montrose and, from there, I moved to Partick Thistle, who were in the SPL, and that’s maybe where the manager saw me – he was the manager of Ross County at the time.

“It was good times at Partick. I enjoyed my time. When I played there, the aim was to get down to England and I’ve done that.

“I know what it takes to play in League One and I am looking forward to the challenge. It’s a competitive league and I think it will be better than last time I was there with the teams coming down and the teams going up.”

Those teams include a couple of familiar names.

He said: “I checked the fixtures and we play Doncaster and Wigan one after the other; I’ll look forward to that when it comes.”
