Craig Stephen Noone (born 17 November 1987 in Liverpool, Merseyside) is an English footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Championship club Plymouth Argyle.


Playing career



Noone, formerly a roofer by trade, began his football career as a youth team player with Skelmersdale United, and rose up through the ranks to make his first team debut in the 2005/2006 season.

In the summer of 2007, Noone had a trial with Belgian club Royal Antwerp, but ultimately did not sign for them, and in October of the same year, Liam Watson took Noone to Burscough on a two-year contract.

Nine months later, in July 2008, Watson signed the player once again, this time for Southport, Watson having resigned from his post at Burscough. However, Noone played only one game for the club, and was signed by Football League Championship club Plymouth Argyle for an undisclosed fee, which could rise to in excess of £100,000.[1]

Plymouth Argyle

On 30 August 2008, Noone made his debut for Plymouth as he came of the bench against Burnley in a league match, the game ended in a goalless draw. He scored his first goal for Plymouth on the 15th November 2008 in a 1-0 win away at Coventry City, coming off the bench to score an 87th minute winner.

After 10 substitute appearances for Plymouth, Noone made his first start for the club in the league match versus Southampton FC on Boxing Day 2008, where his team won 2-0. On 3 January 2009, Noone made his FA Cup debut coming off the bench for his sides 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Noone was linked with a £800,000 move to either Sunderland or Wigan of the Premier League on the 6th January[2], which prompted a response from Mackems manager Ricky Sbragia saying that they were not considering making a bid for the winger.

On the 10th September 2009, after Noone had only made two league substitute appearances so far in the 2009/10 season, Exeter City signed him on a 3-month loan deal.[3] He made his debut against Leyton Orient and scored the equaliser in a 1-1 draw. Noone scored in his final appearance for Exeter against Brentford before being recalled on 2 November.
