Versatile teenager Finley Craske has joined Yeovil Town on loan from League One side Plymouth Argyle until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old was an unused substitute for the Glovers’ 1-0 win at Weston-super-Mare in their final pre-season friendly at the weekend.
The graduate of the Home Park academy has joined on a youth loan agreement and is described as “comfortable in both defence and midfield.”
Speaking of the new recruit, manager Chris Hargreaves said: “Finley is another positive addition to the squad. He is someone who is highly thought of at Plymouth.
“He is a young player, who is eager to learn and make the most of his time here, not just for himself, but for Yeovil too.
“He can play in multiple positions and his versatility will add to what we already have.”
In a slightly briefer quote, the youngster added: “It feels really good to be here. I can’t wait to get going.”
The youngster has played at Huish Park in pre-season, coming on for the final eight minutes of his parent club’s 2-0 friendly win there a week ago, replacing former Glovers’ player and Plymouth captain, Joe Edwards.
He signed his first professional contract last month having graduated from the club’s academy and had a loan spell at Southern League side Plymouth Parkway.
By our count, this leaves Hargreaves with two further loans spaces having already brought in midfielders Sam Perry and Sam Pearson from Walsall and Bristol City respectively.
