Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman has given his backing to David Morgan as the Southport midfielder steps up to League One.
The 26-year-old joined Stanley earlier this week, and despite the climb of three divisions, Coleman told the club’s website:
“David is a good player; I’ve watched him numerous times at Southport and he’s been comfortably their best player. He can be an attacking or defensive midfielder, he’s got a terrific shot on him and a good range of passing as well.
“He hasn’t been playing full-time football but he did his Youth Training Scheme (YTS) at Nottingham Forest. He’s a fit lad and I don’t see it as a gamble.
“He’s a man who has played a lot of football matches and he’s done consistently well for Southport. This is a chance for him in the Football League and these lads tend to grab it with both hands.”
