Trialist Striker Revealed

The unnamed striker on trial with Morton is former Coventry City player Donovan Simmonds.

Rumours on the greenockmorton.org messageboard had suggested that Simmonds was the man on trial at Cappielow, and new signing Kevin McKinlay has confirmed the rumours in today's Greenock Telegraph.

"We have a striker called Simmonds training with us as well," he told the Tele's Chris Hanlon. "He looks like a good player and is very fast."

Simmonds (pictured) started his career with Charlton Athletic, but he was released by their youth academy and subsequently joined Midlands club Coventry City. The 21-year-old spent two seasons at the Ricoh arena, in which time he had spells on loan with Gillingham and Kilmarnock, before joining Maltese premier division club Floriana last summer.
