After a slight injury concern Smalley only played the final 30 minutes, coming on as a substitute for Nathan Thomas. On first impressions he does not seem to possess the pace to easily beat a man, which was an issue when deployed on the wings. Looked more comfortable playing through the middle, but a few more games for him to rediscover his fitness will help prove himself. The jury is still out on this one.
Duncan Capriotti (Trialist 1)
It is clear to see why the American trialist is no longer desired by John Sheridan; the sort of player that looks like he is putting a lot of effort into a game but you couldn’t remember him doing anything of note. A poor first touch and a lack of pace topped it all off.
Oliver Norburn (Trialist 2)
Looked very comfortable on the ball and had good vision with his passing. Had a fierce shot which was well saved by the Weymouth ‘keeper. Was eager to get forward which is what the Pilgrims require after the loss of last season’s captain Conor Hourihane to Barnsley. There are probably better alternatives out there but Norburn will surely be hanging around the Argyle camp for a few more friendlies yet.
