Lathrope, 20, featured in the 8-0 pre-season win at Tiverton and has impressed the Gulls' manager, Paul Buckle.

Buckle said: “We are going to take him because he's shown enough in his time here. He's got an abundance of quality on the ball - with both feet - sees a pass and he's the type of player that we always look to sign.

“He fits in nicely to give us an extra body in the middle of the park and he's got a good pedigree having been at Norwich for two years as an apprentice and then two years as a pro.”
