PJ signs on loan
Ayr United have today completed the emergency loan signing of goalkeeper Peter ‘PJ’ Morrison from Motherwell. PJ will compete with Peter Urminsky for the goalkeeping position after injury cut short Viljami Sinisalo’s spell at the club. The loan is initially for 7 days with an option to extend.
Manager David Hopkin said: “Losing Vil is a big blow but we have moved quickly to get PJ in and thank Motherwell for their cooperation in allowing him to join us for the rest of the season. We worked tirelessly for the last 48 hours since knowing the extend of Vil's injury. PJ is a young goalkeeper that has a very bright future and he has already had plenty of first team action and clean sheets this season."
Morrison has been with the Steelmen since the age of 11 and has impressed through the groups at Motherwell from a young age. Described as an agile, commanding keeper, he was part of Well’s Scottish FA Youth Cup-winning side and has experienced first-team football during loan spells with Clyde, Albion Rovers and Cowdenbeath.
The 23-year old had a loan spell with League 1 leaders Falkirk at the start of the season, making eight appearances and keeping four clean sheets before being recalled in January.
