Bio Extra

Following in the footsteps of his big brother Tyler, Cory came through the youth system at Plymouth Argyle. In late August 2015, there was a special moment for the family when Cory, just turned 17, made the bench for a league match versus Newport watched by almost 8,000 at Home Park, although he was sat beside his big brother on the bench for the duration. Cory's playing career has been concentrated in the non-league scene in the South West of England. As a youngster, his appearance for Thistle in the summer of 2016 was unusual to say the least…

Having been released by Argyle, Cory was on the lookout for a new club in July 2016 and landed for a trial with Bath City. Little did he know he would end up in a two-for-one situation in a match at Twerton Park on the 2nd July 2016! He kept goal for Partick Thistle in the opening half and did quite well, pulling off some good saves. He was thwarted for a "clean-sheet" when a penalty was conceded in the last minute of the half. Conor Cullen came on to keep goal for Thistle in the second half and, at half-time, Cory changed into a Bath City strip and proceeded to take his place on the home team's bench. He came on for Bath City for the final half-hour and therefore made a bit of history by becoming the first footballer to play for and against Partick Thistle in the same match. 4-0 to Bath City was the final (embarrassing) result - whether or not the clean-sheet goes on Cory's record is up for debate but, thankfully, that's not our problem!
