Plymouth Parkway boss Lee Hobbs has said he considers the loan signing of Ollie Hulbert as something of a coup with the Glovers’ front man heading to Devon until the end of the year.

Speaking to Plymouth Live, the Parkway boss said;

“It’s a big signing because he is a very good player,” Hobbs said. “Jared Lewington has gone back to Taunton and I am just waiting for the I’s to be dotted and the T’s to be crossed, but I am delighted to get him into the building.

“He is a very, very good centre forward and while he is only 20 years old, he has a lot of experience of non-League. He was a pro at Bristol Rovers and (Chris) Hargreaves took him to Yeovil, he’s been out on loan at Gloucester City and Hereford, he had half a season in the Welsh Prem – this is a very, very good addition for us.

Interestingly, he made a comment about the former Bristol Rovers striker’s future suggesting his future may lie at a higher level … and potentially away from Huish Park;

“He is experienced at the league above and scored goals in both the National North and South. He is joining us until January, he has an agent and his agent only wants it to be until January when he hopes to get him a move to a higher level, but if he comes in and does well and there is no interest and he enjoys himself, then hopefully we can keep him.”

Hulbert has had a short stint with Gloucester City in the National League North, scoring once in three appearances.

Plymouth Parkway is also temporary home of Toby Stephens, the midfielder has impressed for Hobbs’ side as they turned a corner in the form table.

“Toby has been very good for us. I am really pleased with Toby,” Hobbs said. “He is a very good footballer and a great kid. He works hard and is very tidy, a very good player.
