Lowland League | Maintaining momentum key focus says Morrison

Posted on Saturday, January 14th, 2023

If ever the adage ‘hard work pays off’ required a flag carrier, Gavin Morrison would be at the front of the queue following his fight back from a lengthy spell on the treatment table.

The 33 year old midfielder brings a wealth of experience into the heart of the Spartans engine room and the former Inverness Caley player, who has also had a spell in Iceland, is looking forward to the next task in his flourishing career – the visit of Open Goal Broonhill to Ainslie Park.

Speaking ahead of the Park’s Motors Lowland League match of the day, Morrison said, “The boys have been doing great of late and I’m delighted that I’m back and able to contribute too.  It’s been a pretty frustrating period for me, trying to get myself fit and all I wanted to do was to get back playing and helping the boys on the pitch.

“We’ve been up against some good sides recently and we’re doing well, putting wins together which is what everyone wants.  The dressing room is in a good place and we’ve just got to keep on working hard and continue what we’ve been doing.

“It’s a great squad to be part of . You want to come and play football and work hard, so I’m just happy to be doing it.”

The league table is a congested one at the upper echelons of the roster. Morrison is keen to ensure his side maintain the momentum they have been building up in recent weeks and the summer signing from Cowdenbeath is looking for more of the same come 3pm Saturday afternoon.

Morrison added, “I think we’ve just got to focus on what we’ve been doing.  We’ve been playing well and working consistently as a unit.  We’ve been dominating large spells of games which is so important in this league you know you are coming up against good teams.

“It’s been a long time since the first game against Open Goal and we’re probably both different sides.  Consistency breeds confidence.  We’ve developed a strong defence since the start of the season and clean sheets have been crucial too.  You only have to look at Blair Carswell’s save late on last week to see just how important these parts of the jigsaw over ninety minutes are.

“It’s a great foundation for the rest of the team to go express themselves and play football so we’re very grateful to have them behind us.”

Kick-off is 3pm. Admission £9 Adults, £6 Concessions.
