Scott Signs Apprentice Forms

Crocker on Board for Argyle

25 June 2019

YOUNG striker Scott Crocker has signed apprentice forms with Argyle as the youth team continues to take shape for the new season.

A natural goalscorer and blessed with tremendous pace, Scott was promoted to the Under-18s on a number of occasions last season and always impressed with the threat he posed to opposing defenders.

After staying in the local scene for much of his junior career and following a trial with Southampton in the Premier League, the Pilgrims have secured the signature of a talented youngster who has been on the Green radar for a long time.

“I am happy and relieved,” said Scott. “I’ve put a lot of effort into football and I joined Argyle very late because I always felt I could also achieve things with the team I was with before.

“Argyle were always offering me a place and, after experiencing the top levels, I realised that wasn’t for me. As soon as I got here, everyone was talking about apprenticeships and, because I left it so late, I felt my chances might have decreased.

“I was playing local football and had trials with Southampton, but I know a lot of people in the team at Argyle and liked the football we were playing. I see myself as a goalscorer and like the ball in behind to run on to.

“The plan now has to be to overachieve and push as hard as I can. My dad is a very determined guy, as well, and he will definitely be there to show me the big picture.”
