Ferrier: we're like a big family

15 September 2018

Saddlers striker Morgan Ferrier feels right at home since his move to the Banks’s and says the squad feels like a big family.

The forward was brought in by manager Dean Keates on the eve of the League One season and has gone from strength to strength, scoring two goals in eight appearances.

The young squad are seven games unbeaten heading into today's fixture against Doncaster Rovers, a team who have also started well.

But 23-year-old Ferrier is confident the team will continue their unbeaten start to the season.

“It has been an unreal experience for me,” he said.

“I came in on the Friday and got put straight in on the Saturday. We are still unbeaten and that is the best time to be playing football when you are winning.

“Hopefully we can keep going and keep on this run that we are on at the moment.

“When you are winning you just want the next game to come.

“Because we have started so well, everyone can’t wait for the Saturday or the Tuesday to come round.

“We have now got to stay grounded and keep working hard, do what we know we are good at as a team and then I feel like we can go far this season.”

And it’s that family feel that Ferrier is hoping will carry the Saddlers through.

He continued: “The lads are unreal. When I first came in I didn’t really know what to expect because I didn’t really know anyone here.

“We have got such a good team ethic here and the team are so close.

“We have all gelled really well, we have had a few new lads come in but we are like a big family and I think you can see that on the pitch.

“The club have helped me out massively since the move. The place I have moved into, the landlord and his family have been so welcoming and they have made me feel right at home.

“Coming into a new club you want the fans to adore you, working hard is the first tick you have to get. If you work hard then the performances will come.”
