Craig Elliott says loan signing Jake Beesley has everything he wants in a striker.

The 21-year-old has linked up with the Pilgrims on a month-long loan spell from National League North title chasers Salford City. Elliott knows all about the forward’s attributes, having managed the Chesterfield youth product during a loan spell at his former club Shaw Lane.
