Today we had a chance to catch up with our youth system players goalkeeper Jake Victor and striker Kelvin Morgan to ask them how they felt being given first team contracts and the prospect of lining up in the Premier Division alongside so many established players. Kelvin already had the great experience of forming part of the Bratislava expedition and even getting minutes in the match under his belt. He told us “I am thankful to have been given this opportunity to be part of the first team. I am excited to start this season and get a lot of experience playing football.”
Jake comes straight from the under 17 team and is already a promising talent inbetween the sticks. He is relishing the chance to prove himself in Gibraltar’s top league. “The opportunity to sign a contract with the first team and spend all season training in this very professional setup is a fantastic opportunity. The new coaches have already brought in very important players for next season which will allow the club to challenge for the league title. I can’t wait to start training!”
We wish them the very best and hope their hard work is rewarded with plenty of time on the pitch.
