Noone goal completes 'fairytale'

Plymouth Argyle boss Paul Sturrock says Craig Noone's goal on Saturday capped off a "fairytale" time for the winger.

Former roofer Noone was spotted playing non-league football for Southport by an Argyle scout and was signed up by Sturrock at the start of the season.

"Andy King had a wee walk to a football game one day and all of a sudden saw this boy rampaging down the wing," Sturrock told BBC Radio Devon.

"Next minute, it's a fairytale and he's playing in the Championship."

It was a great run and a great finish and he's capable of that

Noone scored a wonderful goal with two minutes left at Coventry on Saturday to secure all three points for Argyle.

Less than a year ago Noone, who celebrates his 21st birthday on Monday, was playing football semi-professionally and was a full-time roofing contractor in his native Liverpool.

"I think everybody will remember it because it's the winning goal," Sturrock said.

"It was a great run and a great finish and he's capable of that," he added.
