First Team

Morrison caps return with goal

28th August 2019

Callumn Morrison was delighted to get his first game under his belt as he steps up his return from knee surgery.

The 20-year-old missed the end of last season after the operation which has kept him out all summer, but he capped his return to the Reserves with a goal in yesterday's 3-1 win over St Mirren.

"It was good to get back out there after a frustrating four months," Cal told HeartsTV after the game. "Now I'm back and it was good to get a goal. I felt a bit rusty but I'm sure my first touch will come back at some point."

The winger managed 70 minutes before being replaced by Connor Smith.

"I felt like I could have played the full game. Kirky was saying to me 'do you feel alright?', I said 'aye'!' I think he just took me off to be safe, but I'm sure I'll get there - maybe in the next couple of weeks."

Now, Cal is intent on getting back into the first team after making 35 appearances last season.

"I've just got to impress the gaffer every time he comes to watch. Hopefully I can do that. My ambition is obviously to get a few goals for the first team this season.

"I probably could have had a few last year, I just need to work on my composure and put the chances away when I get them. But it was good to get a goal today, and I feel good."
