The Highland League has been a hotbed for talent in years gone by and there is no doubt Brora Rangers’ capture of Gavin Morrison was certainly in the top 10 of signings made in the Highland League by any club.
The former Inverness Caledonian Thistle midfielder joined Brora back in 2013 and has this week committed his future to the Cattachs until the end of season 2019/2020.
Morrison said: “I have dedicated my future to Brora Rangers as I feel like a part of this club, and also respect how well everybody from the board, the players and the supporters have treated me over the last four years. I also firmly believe in what we are trying to achieve here. With everybody buying in – the players, board and fans – I am very confident of achieving the goals we have set ourselves.
“I am very hungry for success, and those who know me know that. If I am being totally honest, we have failed collectively as a group in terms of the Highland League Championship. Being in the top three doesn’t interest me, I want to win, whether it’s league titles or cup competitions, that will be my focus for as long as I am here.”
Morrison was part of the very impressive double championship winning side under David Kirkwood and played alongside current manager Ross Tokely in those title winning campaigns. Gavin was very enthusiastic to highlight the strengths he feels Tokely brings to the Brora management hot seat and why he wanted to stay under Tokely’s new regime.
“I have a lot of respect for Ross, he looked out for me at Inverness Caley when we were both there and I was new to the first team and young. It was also tremendous to play with him at Brora when we won the two championships back to back. He is a winner and demands the best from us every training session and on a match day. He brings the pressures and challenges that I enjoy playing under.”
Morrison’s new deal keeps him at Dudgeon Park until June 2020 and is the first extension signed under Ross Tokely.
