Morrison meets Monkspath youngsters

Everybody’s dream is to play at Wembley, it’s brilliant for them to have that dream and really enlighten their education with football.

Monkspath Junior & Infant School had a surprise visitor on Thursday afternoon…Michael Morrison.

The Blues captain visited the Solihull school to congratulate the football team on winning the Birmingham City Community Trust EFL Boys Cup.

Morrison spent time with the team and wished them good luck as they will now go onto represent Blues in the national southern finals at Reading on Friday, 9 March.

“They have done terrifically well, it’s a great opportunity for them I think they are only a few wins away from Wembley,” said Morrison, who presented the trophy to the pupils.

“Everybody’s dream is to play at Wembley, it’s brilliant for them to have that dream and really enlighten their education with football.

“It teaches so much off the field, discipline, working together. I am really keen on kids taking part in sport. The fact they have done so well is brilliant for them - you can see the excitement on their faces.

“When I was ten I wasn’t doing so well as them. I was the same though, I just wanted to play football for whoever it was at the time.

“I was at Cambridge United, I just wanted to play for their first team, at the time you don’t think about everything else that goes with it. You just want to play football. It’s nice to see that naivety of just going out there and enjoying it and living the dream.”
