A SAUCHIE legend was honoured last weekend as Brian Morgan received a testimonial match against Bo’ness United.

Morgan has been a loyal servant to the club for most of the past 14 years and his time at the club was celebrated with a memorable 5-5 draw at Beechwood.

A whole host of Sauchie legends returned for the club, including Jon Tully and Colin Samuel, to give Morgan the testimonial he deserved.

Speaking with Advertiser Sport, Morgan hailed the club for its progression and looked back fondly on the time he has spent there.

He said: “It was good to be recognised for the time and efforts I’ve put in at Sauchie over the past 14 years.

“I had a break in between where I went to Bo’ness for a couple seasons but, in general, it’s been almost 14 years I’ve been at the club.

“It was good to get some of the boys back – we had Colin Samuel and he’s played at the World Cup with Trinidad so it doesn’t get much bigger than that.

“It was great to see some old faces back.”

Sauchie hosted Bo’ness Legends at Beechwood on Sunday in a memorable 5-5 draw, with Morgan’s own nephews providing the equalising goals for the Reds.

“It was basically the boys I played with at Bo’ness that we played,” Morgan added. “So it was nice to see them all again.

“It was 5-3 to Bo’ness with around five minutes left so we brought on my nephews Max Duncan and Tyler Scott and they both got a goal each so we called it a day after that.”

Morgan joined the club when he was turning 20 in 2010, shortly after gaffer Fraser Duncan took over.

Morgan hailed Duncan as a great role model, fondly remarking that he has been there every step of his journey so far.

He added: “The growth I’ve seen at the club is unbelievable to be honest.

“The facilities and the changing rooms have all been done up, the effort that Fraser and the committee have put in over the years has been incredible.

“Fraser was the one that took me there and we’ve shared this journey with each other so it’s been quite frightening to see how far we’ve taken them.”

Morgan has made over 400 appearances for the club, scoring over 100 goals in the process. He singled out two free kicks to earn Sauchie promotion in 2012 as his most memorable goals.

Morgan is still a regular feature for the Reds and fans can be sure to see him kicking on for more time to come.
