Former Helston Athletic, Wendron United and Truro City footballer Luke Jephcott has been named Plymouth Argyle's young player of the season for the second year running.

The twenty-year-old, who hails from Ponsanooth, scored a whopping 85 per cent of the supporters' vote to retain the award he first won in 2019.

The recognition comes following a breakout season for the Welsh youth international, who scored seven goals in just 13 games in Sky Bet League Two last season.

The youngster, who was born in Wales, moved to Ponsanooth at a young age and played youth football for Wendron and then Helston, before being snapped up by Argyle as a 14-year-old.

He made his professional debut in 2018/19 before being sent on loan to Southern League Premier South side Truro City at the start of the 2019/20 campaign, scoring five goals in 18 games for Paul Wotton's side before being recalled by Argyle boss Ryan Lowe at the start of January.

He was thrust straight into the side for Argyle's trip to Scunthorpe United on January 4 and scored twice as they won 3-1 at Glanford Park.

He repeated the feat in a 3-0 win at Carlisle United a week later before scoring his first Home Park goal in their 2-2 draw with Crawley Town on January 28.

Jephcott continued his fine form into February and March, heading home the equaliser in Argyle's 2-1 win at home to Crewe Alexandra and netting in a 3-0 victory at home to Grimsby Town.

His goals helped propel Argyle into the automatic promotion places at the time of the suspension of all football amid the coronavirus outbreak, with the Pilgrims currently waiting to see if they will earn promotion to League One.
