Plymouth’s Purrington On England Radar

League Two Apprentice of the Year contender, Plymouth Argyle’s Ben Purrington may soon have a double reason to celebrate with The Plymouth Herald reporting that the 17-year-old left-back has caught the eye of England scouts.

Purrington made his debut for the club in their 3-2 Boxing Day win at Oxford and has kept his place ever since, starting in six of the seven games to have taken place since then.

The Exeter-born defender who is the nephew of former England rugby union international Richard Hill has earned plaudits for his assured displays and received a glowing testimonial from LFE’s Regional Officer in the South West, Roger Gibbins towards his Apprentice of the Year nomination, however, manager John Sheridan is keen to ensure that Purrington keeps his ‘feet firmly on the ground’ as he continues to develop.

“Ben has done well. He has come in and hit the ground running,” Sheridan said.

“He has got lots of enthusiasm, which I expect from a young player, but he has still got a lot to learn.

“He’s a level-headed lad and I will make sure he keeps his feet firmly on the ground.”
“Everyone gets excited when young lads come in and play four of five games, but not me. He’s just part and parcel of our team and he’s learning the game.”

Merry Christmas
