There was the two guys we had on trial from St Kitts and Nevis, must be thirty years ago.

They played in a game at Cappielow and were pish.

Can't remember their names.

 

Harry Curran ?

It wasn't quite 30 years ago, was around 2000 so 20 years ago. One of them was Austin Huggins. I don't remember them playing but they sat in with the Morton fans one night at a game at Airdrie.

Sure it was just a trial they were on, so probably wouldn't really be a mention of it. Can't find much on Google at all.

Hang your head in shame for only having big Parfait on the bench. Those marauding runs with the ball out from the back were outstanding. Good player - real pity that his career was taken from him the way it was. 

And Cham in his place.....


All in with a Doyle Brunson

Jose Quitongo played a friendly for us and scored in it.

Then signed for the opposition.


McGhee needs some support, there's no-one backing him up.
Hayes playing it forward, Bell being forced to do it all alone, now forward from Marr, here's Ritchie, still Andy Ritchie, look at the control...

That is a marvellous goal from Andy Ritchie. Twenty minutes on the clock and Morton's supporters come alive. A goal which epitomises the control, the arrogance, the cheek of Andy Ritchie.

In the Arthurlie game c. 2007/8 pre-season we had a black guy playing as a trialist.  Apparently he was a waiter, and he played like one too.

 

Dungo McClung played in that game too, as did Brian Graham.

I seem to remember us losing 1-0in that game Ayrshire Ton!!!! 

You might be thinking of the friendly where they changed their whole team at HT. Their youth lot scored via a heavily deflected free kick and Phil Cannie missed a last minute penalty.

There no place (like home) for Jonathan Toto?


Look at her riding pillions on Davy’s sea-bike, carrying an apoplectic macaw in a silver hoop. Oh, Morton, let’s go there this winter!  Or learning the Japanese chinchona from that Kobe group, in a dress that looks like a blowtorch rising from one knee, and which should sell big in Texas. Morton, is that real fire? Happy, happy little girl!

Forgive my ignorance - is Harry Curran the one who played with us in the late 90s? If so, what's the BAME connection?

Can you expand on that answer please?

 

(and I don't mean the club's full name or anything)

Before he joined Morton he played for Dunfermline and was punted along with AN Other for racially abusing a teammate.

Big Parfait appeared at the same time with another player. Was it Karim Boukkra? I remember them both staying at the travel inn in Greenock. I'm sure he was decent too. 


There's a storm on the horizon

And for that I can't see the sun

For I'll keep a waiting on the pavement

For the ice cream van to come

My main memory of him was a mazy run he made at the Sinclair Street end that he was unlucky not to score from, possibly against Airdrie. It was shown on Scotsport or Football First at the time, so I dare say AyrshireTon has copied it onto YouTube. I’ll try and dig it out.

Yeah it was Boukkra. Both not lasted 4 months before getting out to escape the Morton directors.
