Darlington: I’d Give My Goals Back To Win 1-0

FC Halifax Town ended 2016 on a downer after suffering a 3-2 loss to Darlington to make it 8 games without a win.

Despite the defeat, Adam Morgan will be rather pleased to have bagged a brace on his debut for the club after joining from Curzon Ashton, even if they were both rather bizarre goals.

The 22-year old fired a 25-yarder at Peter Jameson who could only palm the ball past him to give Halifax a leveller, before Morgan attempted to chip the Quaker keeper for his second. Jameson did manage to catch the ball but fell back into his own net, unable to stop the ball from crossing the line.

Morgan revealed to Shaymen Player HD after the game that he’s happy to have scored, but the result is what matters more…

“I can’t complain, I think it’s a good start, considering this is my first day. I haven’t trained with the lads so I’m pleased with that side. But, it’s disappointing to lose the game. I’d give my goals back to scrape a 1-0 win. Today wasn’t to be; with the weather and the pitch, it wasn’t great, so it was a real battle out there. We just come unstuck in the end but we’ve got every confidence going into the New Year’s Day clash now so we’re looking forward to it”

It isn’t very often when you see a player score a brace where both goals are so out of the ordinary, but Morgan doesn’t care if they still stand…

“If it say’s ‘Adam Morgan, 2 goals’ on Live Score you take it. Both my goals, I hit them well, and the second one I chipped him, so sometimes when the ball’s falling for you they go in. I’m pleased to score two today and hopefully there’ll be many more.”

Both teams created plenty of chances and in the first half especially, it was difficult to split the two sides. Adam believes the loss was unfair on his new club…

“I think a draw would have been fair today. I think with the wind and the pitch, it was a battle. But I don’t think they worked harder than us or battled harder than us, I think they just got the rub of the green on the day and like I say, we’re looking forward to playing them next week”

And with one game under his belt, the former Liverpool man can’t wait to potentially make his home debut on New Year’s Day against Darlington once again…

“Can’t wait, I’ve been up to the Shay a few times to speak to the manager and the chairman. I’ve had a little look round but I think it’ll be great on a match day and I’m really looking forward to it”
