Sam Pearson

Chris Hargreaves had special praise for loan duo Sam Perry and Sam Pearson following the Glovers’ 1-1 draw with Wrexham.

Perry, on loan from Walsall, impressed after a difficult debut and speaking exclusively to the Gloverscast’s Ian Perkins the gaffer said how pleased he was with the young midfielders showing.

“As a midfielder especially – I was a midfielder, so I’m probably harder on midfielders, once you get into the game and into a passing rhythm you become a different player”.

“When that first couple of passes comes off you work your way into the game, I said the same to Worthy (Matt Worthington) at half time.

I thought both midfielders were outstanding, they worked their socks off, very pleased with that but would like them to chip in with goals.”

Pearson & Matty Grivosti

As for Pearson, on loan from Bristol City, Hargreaves was pleased with his ability to step up to this level.

It’s a big jump for Sam to come into such a big environment and such a big game. He’s been playing (Under) 23s football at a very good club in Bristol City but its very different.

He was excellent, he was bright, his legs had given up on him so we had to give him a rest, but he showed enough to show he’s a very talented footballer with a bright future”
