Loanee goalkeeper PJ Morrison: At Falkirk I want to prove I'm good enough to play for Motherwell first team

On loan Motherwell keeper PJ Morrison, who made his Falkirk debut at home to Forfar Athletic on Saturday as a substitute, hopes becoming a regular with the Bairns can help him break into the Motherwell first team in future.

Morrison (22), has had previous short term loans at Clyde, Albion Rovers and Cowdenbeath but is signed up with the Bairns for the entire 2020-21 campaign.

“I’m hoping to get some valuable first team games and prove to the gaffer, both here and at Motherwell, that I’m good enough,” he said.

“The problem with Motherwell is I’ve not had as much opportunity to get games and loan moves have been come and go so to get a loan move for the season is definitely what I need at this time of my career and hopefully it’s a good one.

“I’ve been at Motherwell since I was eight or nine years old, it’s been a long, long time.

“Breaking into the first team there is the dream at the moment. That’s definitely my ambition, to push into that Motherwell team.”

Fir Park number one Trevor Carson got injured in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Ross County and he is someone Morrison admires greatly.

“Trev is a top international,” he added. “He’s one of the best goalies I’ve worked with.

"He's brilliant with me as well so he's a great role model for me. I hope he's all right, I hope it (the injury) is not too bad.

"He's top, top notch."
