Breaking | Kalvin Orsi signs for Morton
by GMFC

Greenock Morton Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of forward Kalvin Orsi on a one-year contract that runs until 10 June 2020.

The 22-year-old wideman began his career as a youth player with Aberdeen before subsequently joining St Mirren, from whom he spent time on loan with Queen’s Park.

It was with Brechin City that he made his first-team breakthrough, racking up 58 starts and 19 substitute appearances over the course of two seasons at Glebe Park.

And Orsi says he is excited to have been handed an opportunity to make a return to full-time football with the Ton. He said: “I’m delighted to sign for Morton and so happy to go back full-time.

“I started out at Aberdeen when I was 12 up until 18 – I moved up there and matured a lot – and then went to St Mirren, where I made my senior debut in a Scottish Cup tie against Spartans.

“With the way things went I thought I actually thought I would get a new contract there, but I was released at the end of the season.

“That’s when I went part-time with Brechin. That was a massive decision for me and something I didn’t know how to feel about at first because I wanted to stay full-time.

“But I felt that it would be more beneficial to go and get as many senior games as I could under my belt, to take one step back to eventually go two forward.

“I’ve spent the last two seasons at Brechin and played 30-odd games in the Championship and that has been massive for my development as a player.

“When David Hopkin got in touch with my agent about me coming to Morton, to get the opportunity to come to such a big club, I almost couldn’t believe it.

“I was desperate to kick on and get back training and playing on a full-time basis. I can’t wait for the challenge.”
