WE are pleased to announce that two more young Greens, Max Childs and Adam Randell, have accepted an apprenticeship for next year.
Goalkeeper Max, from Plympton, attends Hele’s School and joined Argyle’s Academy at the age of nine after being scouted by Technical Development Coach Dan Herring at Goals Soccer School in Plymstock.
Max has been coached by Rhys Wilmot, the club’s first-team and Academy goalkeeping coach, for the last eight years whilst progressing through the age groups.
During his time in the Academy, Max has attended the Northern Ireland Milk Cup/Super Cup three times and was part of the successful squad that came 3rd in 2014, losing 2-1 to Corinthians, of Brazil, in the semi-final.
Max has represented Plymouth Schoolboys at Under-11, Under-14 and Under-15 age groups and, last season , received international recognition when he was selected to train at a two-day England goalkeeping camp for the Under-15s.
Max has made 10 appearances for the Under-18s in the Youth Alliance League this season, showing his capabilities to make important saves using his quick reflexes, along with his technical ability on the floor when playing out from the back.
Midfielder Adam, from Plymstock, attends Plymstock School. John James recruited Adam as a nine-year-old while he was playing for his local team, Hooe Rovers.
Adam attended the Development Centre at Stoke Damerel, before signing for the Academy the following year as an Under-11.
He has represented Plymouth Schools at Under-11, Under-14 and Under-15 levels and has made one full appearance for Argyle Under-18s this season as well as playing three times as a substitute in the Carslberg South West Peninsula League.
Adam also went to Northern Ireland to participate with the Under-15s in the 2015 Milk Cup. He has shown very good technical ability when in possession of the ball and is an intelligent playmaker. He also possesses an incredible desire to learn.
