Before the recent pre-season campaign, it is doubtful that many members of the Green Army were familiar with the name ‘Jack Endacott’.

Now, there cannot be too many who do not know it.

The 17-year-old academy prospect followed up a strong showing, including a goal, against Torquay in pre-season with being given a starting position as Argyle played Peterborough United in the Carabao Cup first round.

Endacott gave a performance that belied his tender years, and although the Pilgrims exited the competition following a 2-0 defeat, it was a fantastic night on a personal level for the left wing-back.

“It was great,” he told Argyle TV. “I think I played well. Obviously, there are areas I can improve on, but it is a good moment for me and my family.

“It was a bit of a shock to me. I was a bit nervous, but I thought I might as well embrace it as best I can.

“I’ve been at the club since I was 10. I spoke to most of my family members when I found out yesterday, they were delighted.”

Jack was pitted against David Ajiboye, a strong, quick player who almost 200 senior appearances behind him, sign by Peterborough from Sutton United in the summer.

It was a stern test, but one that manager Steven Schumacher said he felt that Jack passed. The player himself was happy with how it went, and said that his more senior team-mates were full of praise for him after the game.

“The other players said ‘well done’, and were really supportive of me,” said Jack.

“It was tough. In the first half he was probably getting the better of me, but I feel that in the second half I improved and had the better of him.

“The intensity is much higher. You have to adapt to that, and I thought it was a lot different.”
