Trialist / Weatherson / Co-Op Cup

A few updates from today's papers:

Davie Irons hasn't revealed the identity of the trialist who played against Partick Thistle in midweek but did tell the Greenock Telegraph's Roger Graham that he'd be having another look at him: “He’s a lad from London who has played at Reading. We’ll have another look at him next week.”

In the same article Roger Graham tells us that Peter Weatherson will no longer be used in defence. Irons said: “We’ll be looking on Peter as a striker as opposed to a defender. He has been a bit of a jack of all trades and that maybe hasn’t been helpful to his performance.”

Finally, both today's Tele' and The Scottish Sun reveal that Morton have been named Team of the Round for the second round of the Co-Operative Insurance Cup after beating Hibs 4-3. We were also given the award in the previous round for our 6-3 win against Stranraer.

Iain Russell (pictured, with the award) tells The Sun's Paul Hughes that beating Hibs was the best moment in his career and that he feels he has only now adapted to life in the first division and is proving he can cut it at this level: “Beating Hibs at Easter Road was easily the best night of my career. To go to such a big club and perform on that stage was brilliant and I was buzzing after it.

"I feel like I’m proving myself at this level now. It took time to adjust to the First Division and full-time football again but I’m happy how I’m doing."
