First Team

Cal: Support helped me settle

6th November 2018

Callumn Morrison believes both his teammates and the fans have helped him to settle quickly into life in the Hearts first team.

The academy graduate previously enjoyed loan spells in the lower leagues but was handed his big chance by manager Craig Levein in the summer, and he hasn’t looked back.

With 18 first team appearances under his belt across all competitions this season, Callumn has been rewarded for his fine form with a call up to the Scotland U20s squad and he’s quick to point to the support he’s received on the pitch and from the stands as one of the reasons why he’s fast becoming a Tynecastle favourite.

Speaking to HeartsTV, the flying winger said: “I did get nervous at first but the boys made me settle in, and the fans made me settle in as well. That helped me settle in quicker.

“There are definitely guys on the pitch who can offer advice. You look at the team and there are a lot of experienced boys in the team.

“In near enough every position there is somebody who can help you through the game so it’s better for me and better for a lot of the young boys.

“It gives me more confidence every time I see them (the fans) and every time I hear them on the pitch.

“I can always see them saying things like ‘you’re doing great’ so that gives me a bit more confidence and makes me feel better about myself as well.”
