No grudges here - Marvin Morgan
Arnett Gardens midfielder Marvin Morgan Jr said he holds no grudge against his former club, Waterhouse FC, when the teams meet in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) first leg semi-final on Monday night at Drewsland Stadium.
Morgan spent the 2013-14 season at Waterhouse after leaving his home club Boys' Town. He then transferred to Arnett in 2014, where he has been since.
"I hold no grudge against Waterhouse. I played a season there and they are pretty much a good club. Now, I have a responsibility at Arnett," Morgan told STAR Sports at the RSPL press conference at the Jamaica Football Federation headquarters yesterday.
"I am an experienced player in the league and I just have to go out there and do my best to help my club retain the title. We have not won in the league for a long time, but that is history. We are in the semi-finals and looking forward to the two-way tie against Waterhouse," the former St George's College Manning Cup star said about his team's dip in form in the last three months.
"We are not superstitious, we believe that on the day it will come down to the team that wants it more. We are a team that normally performs in semi-finals and finals. We have a collective group with everybody putting in the work in order to win the title again," Morgan shared.
"I am looking forward to a very rough game, because I know that Waterhouse is a very physical team. I know that their supporters will be very upbeat for the games. I am used to the tough environment at Waterhouse and that gives me the drive to play in these games. It's two good clubs, with good crowd support in Jamaica," he said.
"Waterhouse have added coach (Donovan) Duckie, who has turned the team around and they also have good players coming in during the transfer window. However, playing at home, they will be under pressure to deliver. We had three drawn encounters against them in the preliminary stage, so it could be another stiff game. We are going to try to get this one over them in order to take an advantage going into the Jungle," Morgan said.
