The forward talks about a nomadic career that has taken in the Turkish and Scottish top divisions and his hopes for a new career highlight in the FA CupJake Jervis was an intrepid footballing nomad until he settled at Home Park. As he prepares to take on Liverpool with Plymouth Argyle, his 11th club, in an FA Cup replay on Wednesday, the 25-year-old forward hopes to add a new highlight to a colourful career, ideally a win and goal to top the most satisfying – and most puzzling – he has scored to date.That was in a 2-2 draw away against Fenerbahce, on his debut for Elazigspor, who in 2013 were in Turkey’s top flight. “It was a full house [in the 50,000-capacity Sukru Saracoglu Stadium] and the atmosphere was crazy, absolutely deafening,” Jervis says. “But when I scored it went totally quiet. Our fans were just in a tiny little section in the top corner and I couldn’t hear them. I thought it must have been offside. It felt like a crazy experience and it’s been the highlight of my career so far.” Related: Anfield draw was my greatest experience as a Plymouth fan – but pure pain | Josh Widdicombe Related: Jürgen Klopp does not regret Liverpool’s youngest lineup in Argyle FA Cup draw Continue readingreadfullarticle
