Young Reds centre-back Craig Cathcart has joined Plymouth Argyle on a six-month loan deal.

The Northern Ireland U21 international will look to gain first-team experience with the Championship club under the supervision of manager Paul Sturrock.

Cathcart goes straight into the Plymouth squad to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday in the opening league fixture of the season.

The 19-year-old, who won the 2007 Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award at United, is highly rated at Old Trafford. He emerged through the youth ranks as captain of the U18s, before excelling in the Reds reserves.

The Belfast-born defender is no stranger to loan spells, having enjoyed half season in Belgium's second division with Royal Antwerp. A spell in the Championship will help progress his career even further.

"Craig is a big cente-half that we have been watching from afar," revealed Plymouth boss Sturrock on the Pilgrims' website. "He is a good centre-half with good qualities, and you don't play for Manchester United if you're not of a very decent standard. I am very happy to bring the boy on board and it is up to him to get himself in the team."

Good post marty.

Wondered when someone would mention this story, Cathcart was rated as one of Fergie's best youngsters EVER last season and great things are expected of him.

Good to keep up to-date with what he is up to. Let's hope he has a good season at Plymouth.

Saw him play with the "European Under-21 XI" or whatever that lot was called, looks absolutely AMAZING.
