Yeovil Town striker Adam Morgan was an unused substitute today, as he formally commenced his loan spell with Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone. The 20 year old former Liverpool academy player was named in the squad of eighteen that travelled to play Ross County, as he commenced a five month loan deal with the Perth side.
Morgan was kept out of the starting line-up by another player with Yeovil Town connections, with Steven MacLean scoring in the 2-1 win at Victoria Park in front of 3,287 spectators. However, he might have hoped to have got onto the pitch given that MacLean's strike partner Stevie May was sold to Sheffield Wednesday for an undisclosed fee, with the Glovers player intended to be his numerical replacement. Instead he will have to wait for his time on the field of play for another day.
The Liverpudlian has been talking to the Scottish Press about his time in his home city, and his decision to quit Anfield for life in League One. He said that much of his thinking when he left the Premier League club was down to their policy of recruiting from outside the club, rather than promoting players from the youth ranks:
"When you see guys like Luis Suarez coming in it can be hard for a young lad. But I lived my dream, I played three times for the first team and was on the bench in Premier League games. It looks good saying you are a Liverpool player but I canít be a reserve team player my whole life. I had to make a massive decision and I made it off my own back leaving for Yeovil rather than staying in my comfort zone at Liverpool. It had a huge effect on my life. It didnít work out great but hopefully now I can make an impact here (at St Johnstone). I watched the (St Johnstone) team against Spartak Trnava on the telly and they looked a very good team. Iím looking forward to getting going here."
