Here is the latest news on our two star twin brothers.
Carl played for Aldershot reserves during the week in a 2-2 draw with Gillingham reserves. interestingly both Marvin Morgan and Scott Donnelly were in the same team, Marvin scoring. Aldershot Manager Gary Waddock was impressed with Carl and wants him back for pre-season training. We know that Carl’s ambition is to be a professional footballer, we also know that he is more than good enough to achieve this so this is an exciting opportunity for him. Watch this space…
What about Callum?
Well, the fleeting glimpses we have seen of Callum this season have, I think, persuaded many that if he is fit he will also be a major asset for us. The bad news is that his groin problem means he is unlikely to play again this season. The good news is Callum appears keen to play and our job over the next few months is to help him regain full fitness for the start of next season. That means we need to see what medical and other assistance he needs to sort out his problems – let’s remember that because of injuries he hadn’t played for 3-4 years prior to this season so these problems have not been surprising – and we also need to get him to commit to the Club.
So the plan is to have a fully fit Callum Martin integrated into the team delivering for us next season.
In the meantime, it won’t be a surprise that we would be delighted if anyone was able to help financially with the cost of Callum’s recuperation. If you have been excited with what you have seen this season and would consider investing in this player have a word with me tomorrow or over the next few days.
