Former Helston Athletic, Wendron United and Truro City striker Luke Jephcott made the latest step on his international football journey at the weekend.

Plymouth Argyle striker Jephcott, 20, earned his second cap for Wales’ under-21 side in their 3-0 win at home to Moldova in their UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier on Friday night.

He is also set to be involved in their final qualifier against Germany tomorrow night - although they are already out of contention to qualify for the finals.

The 20-year-old striker has been in superb form for the Pilgrims so far this season, netting five times in seven games -including a brace in a 4-2 win over Swindon Town in his most recent game to head the Devon side’s goalscoring charts.

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 and scored seven goals in 18 games as Argyle won promotion from EFL League Two on points-per-game after the season’s early end in March amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Jephcott made his Wales under-21 debut in the team’s 1-0 defeat to Bosnia and Herzegovina in September.
