The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Joshua Richards

PLY­MOUTH’s long pur­suit of winger Alex Bray has fi­nally paid off and now they are set to reap the re­wards, ac­cord­ing to boss John Sheri­dan.

Bray, 19, has joined on a five-month loan from Premier League Swansea after star­ring against them in a pre-sea­son friendly.

After fi­nally snap­ping up the young­ster, Sheri­dan is con­fi­dent the best is yet to come.

“Straight after the pre­sea­son game we asked about his avail­abil­ity,” said Sheri­dan. “Swansea coach Alan Cur­tis kept us in­formed of his sit­u­a­tion. It has been go­ing on since then.”

And Sheri­dan is con­fi­dent that the tricky winger is at the per­fect club to con­tinue his up­ward tra­jec­tory.

“What I like about him is that he’s at a Premier League club and has all the lux­u­ries in the world, but he wants to come out and play foot­ball,” he said.“I can see from the way he plays and the way he trains that he’s re­ally hun­gry.

“I have read one or two things that he has said and, hope­fully, it’s a learn­ing curve for him. He’s com­ing from one of the best foot­ball teams in the Premier League.

“This will be a dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ment. Ob­vi­ously, we are not Swansea City but we will try to play. Hope­fully he can help us and we can help him as a player.”
